3 BUILDINGS, 3 MATERIALS, 1 GREAT CONCEPT
A House Project That Brings Out The Real Essence Of What Truly Makes A Home
Los Terrenos is a wonderful concept which really puts emphasis on enhancing people’s lifestyles in homes while only using a few materials. This collection of three buildings that make up one whole home shows how the natural environment really inspired some of the designs, while the idea of what helps bring the feeling of comfort and being at home further guided how each building would turn out based on its function.
The two buildings that serve as the living, dining, and kitchen space, for instance, is covered with a mirror façade which reflects the beauty of the natural environment, allowing you to blend and disappear into the woods. This concept caters to the people’s need for comfortable privacy from the world. The inside is spacious with a 360-degree view of the surrounding landscape which would allow people to admire and appreciate the natural environment they are living within. The bedroom building, however, takes an opposite approach. Being almost entirely enclosed with clay brick walls and plywood, this concept caters to the people’s need for security and solitude when sleeping in a cozy bed.
The concept in its entirety is truly filled with inspiration, all while being able to bring out so much on a strict budget.
For this new house project, Los Terrenos (The Terrains), Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao conceived a trio of small buildings (just under 2,200 square feet in total), each of which serves a specific function and emphasizes one of the three main materials in the project’s palette.
Using just three materials might seem downright monastic to many, but it was a cornucopia to Bilbao. “We usually use just one material,” she explains, alluding to the strict budgets of many of her projects. “We typically don’t get to do that much experimentation.” Still, she and her colleagues made a little go a long way.
