terraced architecture


Los Terrenos by Tatiana Bilbao 

Bilbao conceived the new house, Los Terrenos (The Terrains), as a trio of small buildings (just under 2,200 square feet in total), each of which serves a specific function and emphasizes one of the three main materials in the project’s palette. The largest of these, a structure that contains an open living/dining/ kitchen space, is clad in mirrored glass, allowing it to disappear into the surrounding vegetation; its peak-roofed profile mirrors those of the mountains, and concealed doors open the interior to the terrace beyond.
