Las Liebres B
Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay
Las Liebres B is one of 4 typologies designed for Comarca Las Liebres, a gated community in Colonia de Sacramento nestled in an environment of natural beauty topography. The lot houses a park with hundred-year-old trees and wide open views of the Uruguayan countryside.
The house is developed on a single floor slightly raised to the natural ground supported on concrete bases and consists of two volumes joined through a covered outdoor space.
The largest volume consists of a living-dining room with a toilet and an integrated kitchen, forming the social area of the house. It connects to a large deck facing north and to the gallery sector that houses the barbecue. A master bedroom with its en-suite bathroom is added to this main volume.
The second volume is made up of a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a space for the laundry room. Both volumes are separated by the semi-covered gallery, which is open to clear views of the countryside, a space designed for both leisure and contemplation.
Referring to the centuries-old forest and the color palette of the field, the exterior walls were covered in natural lapacho boards placed vertically and fully covering the total volume.
