This residential project is nested in the eastern mountains of the city of Bogota, Colombia. The program for the family compound includes 1 apartment, 2 houses, a common indoor pool and common garden areas. Due to the site topography the project is developed in levels/terraces. The driving idea for the open areas was to respect the place and its context and make an effort to re introduced the native vegetation that was present before the urban sprawl took over the hill sides. The Alnus and Tibouchina Forest then becomes the frame for the site. As a design strategy for the narrow sunken gardens the use of black bamboo becomes a screening element and a vertical connection. The central spaces between the 3 residences are left mostly open to house multiple activities during day and night.
