Hillside house

  • Private house, unbuilt
  • Mataojo, Uruguay
  • 2007

The magnificent scenery is the rough hills of Mataojo, about ten kilometres north of Punta del Este. Like a slice set into the elevation lines on a topographical map, the house stretches along a wide sector of the hill, following the terrain. From the main house to the guest wing is some 100 metres, separated by a pool and terrace but held together by a continuous roof and elaborated concrete retaining walls.
