With little room to work with the architects behind this house come up with the idea to integrate the patio and the forest in the house. And the result is amazing.

The architects of ROOF arquitectos were faced with quiet the challenge when taking on this project. They themselves were looking to explore the architectonic and sensorial possibilities offered by a patio with a small nestled forest. The client on the other hand wanted to develop a 350m2 house on a 400m2 piece of land, leaving only the remainder 50m2 available for the patio they were looking for.
The solution lied in integrating the patio in the house itself. This approach allowed them to explore possibilities that go beyond the transit and contemplation of a patio and enable a way of living it in a more immersive way that generates distinct aesthetic and sensorial consequences via the intensified presence of clear space, light and a small forest of sweet gum trees. The house itself is opened up to the garden as a way to embrace the surrounding public space and it truly generates in quiet the extraordinary house.
