From the Architect: "This house is positioned on the flattest space of a sloped site on the north bank of the Calle Calle river. The proposal combines custom solutions with a modular construction system developed by Lucas Maino Fernandez Architects. The modules are used for the program requirements, which were to rescue as many old trees as possible, and to capture as much natural light as possible within the forest. Under this logic, the fragmented location of the modules are connected through a corridor, which acts as the central axis of the project."
