About Rojo

Landscape Integration in the Home Design

The design of this house is rooted in the careful consideration of the existing trees on the property. It doesn’t encroach on their space. Instead, it weaves the elegant construction into the natural environment, amplifying the beauty of the surrounding landscape.

Structural Approach for Spacious Interiors

Our structural approach was designed to liberate the ground floor entirely, facilitating seamless integration between interior and exterior spaces. This design approach results in expansive social spaces, perfect for gatherings and relaxed living.

Innovative Use of Structural Elements

In this project, we incorporated unique structural elements. The screen facing the street, for instance, is a design choice that directs the development of the house inward, towards the patio. A key feature is the beam measuring 24 meters (approximately 79 feet), which serves as a focal point. This beam’s strategic placement frees up the view on the ground floor, offering the social areas stunning views of the garden. Additionally, other beams on the upper floor are arranged to frame the tops of the trees, creating a harmonious balance between the built and the natural.

Material Choices Reflecting the House’s Character

The choice of materials for this house is narrowed down to three elements. Exposed concrete forms the structure, while glass enclosures with aluminum profiles add a touch of modernity. The metallic sub-structure, coated in red (an anti-rust color), brings a bold statement to the house and even inspires its name.
