CHALLENGE: Design a sustainable home that adapts to the natural topography of the land and ensures thermal comfort in each of the interior spaces.
SOLUTION: Design of openwork panels on the facades exposed to the sun and saltpeter, which allow the entry of controlled lighting and in turn ensure cross ventilation inside.
Wind house is a house located in the area of Punta Roca, Colombia that is projected as a space to disconnect from everyday life, with four rooms, a social area and a kitchen totally open to the outside, they constitute the perfect space for family enjoyment .
Due to its location facing the sea, the design program seeks to overcome the challenge posed by strong breeze currents and high levels of salinity in the environment; Therefore, a plant barrier or windbreak curtain is projected at various levels with species characteristic of the area capable of reaching heights of 40 meters, which guarantees better ventilation inside.
The house is designed under the principles of sustainability: its orientation seeks to take advantage of the sun for the greatest number of hours in the pool and terrace area and ensure a direct view of the sea in each of its interior spaces. In its finishes, the use of materials with a low environmental footprint predominates, such as architectural concrete and reforested wood used to manufacture pergolas and lattices that filter the lighting from the outside to the inside.
