What were areas of pastures and crops before have started to transform into residential areas and in this context we chose to bring this architecture to that of barns and farm houses, with wide roofs and compact and easily identifiable forms.Save this picture!Planta Primer Piso+ 372. Parallel porchesA structure of concrete columns, horizontal and slanted beams, as parallel planes, generates in an organized and simple way the structure of the house and its roof. The structure is left exposed on the ground floor, but is clad to shape the roof: above with an asphalt shingle (high heat gain), and below with agglomerate boards finished with a shade of light yellow paint.Save this picture!© Alejandro ArangoSave this picture!Model3. Life in two levelsWithin a compact rectangular outline, the social life of the house takes place on the ground floor and the private life on the second floor, but both are connected by a vertical and continuous space, configured by the roof. Being on the ground floor is to enjoy the nearby landscape, the dogs, the fireplace and the concrete pergola that expands to the garden. Being on the second floor is to inhabit the slopes of the roof, its skylights, deep windows and warm temperature.Save this picture!© Alejandro Arango4. BioclimaticsThe morning and afternoon sun impact the long facades of the house, allowing to heat a larger surface all day, and its compact, symmetrical and regular shape, without courtyards and with concentrated exchange points (skylights, windows, doors), controls the flow of cold wind, allowing to gain temperature and natural lighting in the rooms or in the living room.Save this picture!© Alejandro ArangoProject gallerySee allShow lessRogers Partners and PWP’s Constitution Gardens Redesign Approved for National MallArchitecture NewsA House Named Fred / in situ studioSelected Projects Share Projects Year:  Save this picture!© Alejandro Arango+ 37 Share “COPY” ArchDaily Architects: Plan B Arquitectos Year Completion year of this architecture project Colombia “COPY” CopyHouses•Envigado, Colombiacenter_img 2013 BO House / Plan B ArquitectosSave this projectSaveBO House / Plan B Arquitectos Houses BO House / Plan B Arquitectos ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officePlan:b arquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodEnvigadoColombiaPublished on October 19, 2014Cite: “BO House / Plan B Arquitectos” [Casa BO / Plan:b arquitectos] 19 Oct 2014.
