Casa Cerro

Casa Cerro (Hill House) is the first architectural project we have completed. It is a new build house in the Cordoba region of Andalucia, west of Granada. 

The aim of the design was to maximise the internal spatial volume from a limited footprint area of 140m2, whilst discretely setting the building into the rural landscape in keeping with the local vernacular. By carving into the hillside and building a five meter high retaining wall it was possible to create cool rear patios and dramatic, external and internal spaces, rarely found in this area.

Details for landscaping the surrounding area and the design of the shading pergola are ongoing.
