Single-Person House That is Perfect Get Away From the City

Every person wants a retreat from an every day life. This house on the Andean foothills is the perfect get away from the city which is designed not for a family but for a single person. The topography of the site is quite hard but it is interrupted by an 8×36m horizontal plane running north-south against the slope. The platform generates a stable and continuous surface area that includes a guest room, a patio, a pavilion, a terrace and a pool, which occupy its entire length. The heavy surface of the patio, raised 70cm above the level of the platform, is defined by the base of a pre-existing hawthorn tree. The pavilion is a glass enclosure beneath a light-weight roof, dark in color, an almost empty space from where the gaze traverses the glass in the direction of the foothills, the deep valley, the pines and the space immediately outside, taking in every field of vision the terrain offers.

    Isn’t this a lot of space (and resources) for just one person to use?
