Casa García Cano

Because of the topography and vegetation characteristics of the site, the development of this project has been addressed through fragmentation.

The design separates the program into independent units organized around a central circulation space placing each volume alone and surrounded by the existing vegetation. This dynamic distribution allows the user to experience unlimited extension and complete contact with the surroundings.

The central space or plaza articulates the separate volumes of the project allowing the interaction between built elements and nature in a continuous open space.

The materials used throughout the project permit the volumes and surroundings to blend together resulting in a sober feeling that dominates the surroundings. The overall reaction is a continuous landscape created by the relationship between built and unbuilt elements.
