The project arises from the desire to realize an idea of the owners for a retirement home.
The most important premises were the search for excellent natural lighting in all spaces and linking the natural context with the interior, all this in a relatively fair property for the size of the project to be developed. For this, we started from conceptualizing the stairs as a large showcase to bring natural light inside, while maintaining the privacy of the interior.
Similarly, a volume of glass was conceptualized for the main entrance with a double height ceiling, which at the same time generates a feeling of spaciousness in the inner hall. The social areas were located in a privileged position in order to be able to open to the surrounding exterior gardens.
