The Block Bond House: Blending Architecture With Nature

Expansive interior with wooden beams, brick walls, and open kitchen-dining area.

The Block Bond House, designed by Felipe Palacios and Johann Moeller in 2021 in Lumbisi, Ecuador, is a standout example of contemporary house architecture. Merging thoughtful spatial organization with the site’s natural elements, it presents a modern sanctuary for a young family. Its distinct use of exposed brick, steel, and wood underlines the house’s expressive materiality and warm character, while large folding doors blur the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces.
