J_P Country House in El Peñol, Colombia by tresarquitectos ®

The Medellín-based design & construction office tresarquitectos ® has recently completed J_P Country House, a single-family home located on the outskirts of El Peñol, Antioquia province, Colombia.

Architect’s Statement: 

Country House, Scattered House, Fragmented House. 2100msnm. geography with limited access, rough slopes, implantation directed to three unique visuals, a house in its place that could not belong anywhere else.

Architecture and context mix in horizontal circulations, angles with indecipherable views, unimaginable routes. 4.5m high metal frames, photographically framing the 255 degrees of visual over the dam and a main reservoir. A basic program designed in unique spaces divided into three.

Three modules, three spaces, three visuals, Main, Housing, Social, spaces with growth in height and focus on the daytime landscape; cozy and warm in the night environment.

Zoned lighting approach, dimmable and controllable in the ascending and specific angles of each area of the house make the interior night environment the most pleasant sensation of comfort and an incredible exterior register.

Columns, metal beams and windows make the house austere and zero pretentious in its materialization, allowing the important details of the architecture to be focused on each element.
