The Quito-based architectural studio El Sindicato Arquitectura has recently completed ”Casa entre árboles” a house located in Cumbayá, Quito, Ecuador conceptualized as a conjugation of scenarios with different features that surprise you while you walk around the house discovering nature. Every space in the house have a direct visual and physical connection with a natural space.
Project description by the architects: In a plot with large trees, the client sought to live in proximity to nature, that it must become a characteristic part of the architecture and that it gets inhabited as well as the built object.
Respecting the trees and shrubs of the land, a modular path, in which different living spaces connect between themselves, is defined. The social spaces open to the path and to the visual projection of nature and closes towards the street, the private ones closes towards the path and become completely withdrawn.
As condition, each constructed space has a visual relationship and a direct physical connection with at least one natural space. While the path clearly defines the central garden of the house as semi-private, the living spaces give their own character to their gardens.
