Architect: Plan B Architects (Felipe Mesa) + Giancarlo Mazzanti Location: Bogota, Colombia Constructed in The V house overlooks the distant view of a wetland as well as to enjoy a native garden. The V house is nested along a high slope to avoid the volumetric presence in favor of a branched horizontal extension.
Geometry Its mainly a structure of glass, flexible and modular that defines the geometric structure. Transformations occur due to the design process Branches Like branches of a tree, the V House falls over the site, and branches into two arms that separate the program into two different heights: Above: the social arm, bridge, and terrace Below: to private rooms and services The main trunk of the building is a library that starts the journey staggered from the house.
V House (geometry and grid system)
V House Separation The arms are separated in two ways: the inner courtyard distances them through a native garden, and different heights as stated before. These two actions allow the ramifications to equally enjoy the distant view of the wetlands. Parti The parti of the V house is a series of rectangles.
