For several years in the architecture Mendoza went in another direction. He has rediscovered a panoramic view towards the hills that surround the province, mountains and landscapes as majestic.Choosing to live in the foothills allows to enjoy the silence and tranquility of nature that often gets lost in the city by the pace of life.

A spacious, comfortable and where each member of the family can live in your space clearly identified and defined. With a wonderful view, in a residential area in front of the Cordillera de Los Andes,the house catches the light and landscape in a unique integration.

These volumes as noticeable in the work, let the variety of dimensions in height and position making themselves more visible facades.In addition, a basic theme in this project and which had from the first moment, is the ambiguous relationship between interior and exterior, that is, within a landscape is not only closed, but is related to the exterior landscape forming a line just visible. A journey that is experienced through movement. Furthermore,Ideally located in a corner of the Barrio Pueyrredón, the spacious grounds where he built the house, and the double height of the work, he favors the isolation necessary for the sight that has not interrupted by the neighboring rooftops.

And on the ground floor are the spaces that allow family sociability and services needed to live.The floor space communication between high and low is delimited by a wooden staircase that accesses a slight slip and transparent.
