Comments Off on Sprawling MW House blends into the Peruvian landscape with an undulating green roof

MW House by Riofrio+Rodrigo Arquitectos acts as an extension of the desert hills in Peru . Resembling the relief of the rocky landscape and featuring an undulating green roof, this seasonal house establishes a direct relationship with its surroundings and offers a series of rich indoor and outdoor spaces to its occupants. The house comprises two L-shaped blocks that house different functions. The first one is the main house which accommodates the living room, dining room, kitchen, wine cellar and a bedroom. This volume also features spaces that direct the view of the main rooms of the house towards the nearest hills. Related: Peru’s Chontay house was made using locally-sourced wood and clay to help it blend in with the surrounding mountains The second, smaller side houses service rooms and the entrance, laundry, bedrooms, car parking, kitchen and a storage space . An open courtyard connects the main house with secondary and guest bedrooms and allows occupants to enjoy a direct connection to nature. All of this is enclosed under a green roof that helps the home blend seamlessly with the landscape. + Riofrio+Rodrigo Arquitectos Via Archdaily Photos by Juan Solano Ojasi

The building is located in Bernolákovo, a village and municipality in Western Slovakia. Sitting on a site surrounded by detached houses and garden plots, the house is set back from the street and provides a high level of privacy for its owners. Related: Modern barn-inspired house in Slovakia is filled with natural light and passive solar power The central layer comprises basic dwelling spaces laid out in a Palladian 3×3 grid with a slightly lowered dining room. The outer layer houses different-sized patios , a garage, a swimming pool , and storage areas. This layer acts as an in-between space that serves as a mediator between the central functions and the garden spaces conceived as two distinct environments. While the one in front of the house looks like an informal space, the rear garden has a more functional quality. + Plural Via Plataforma Arquitectura Photos by Daniela Dostálková
