El Paraíso is a house located in the Palomino area, Colombia. It is a house designed for its surroundings, its location responds to the idea of having a direct view of the sea from all interior spaces and that in turn takes advantage of natural resources to project continuous shade on its terraces. It is a house that hides among the characteristic vegetation of the area and opens up to the environment thanks to a glass facade that allows the boundaries between interior and exterior to be blurred.
The architectural program consists of two rooms, a large living room and kitchen that extend across the garden with a large terrace. Large skylights are distributed in this same orientation that create soft contrasts of natural light and shade inside. The furniture design is made to measure to adapt to the house, predominantly wood and concrete type finishes, generating a contemporary and slightly rustic atmosphere characteristic of beach environments.
