This house is located in Las Coronillas, a compound of private estates situated in José Ignacio, Uruguay. Connected to nature, the site provides a profound sense of peace and privacy. The vast extension of the 14-acre lot and the idea of a casual lifestyle inspired us to develop the program in one level. The morphology of this summer house that, without urban restrictions, spreads gently across the land, relates with the serene and relaxing sensation of laying down under the sun.
