Discover the architectural project of this house so differently!

Particularly interested in experimentation with various materials and the expressive possibilities of spaces, the founder of the Ecuadorian firm Emilio López Arquitecto has limitless creativity. This house located in a peripheral area of Quito, in the Nayón Valley, proves it.


Built on land that has a slight unevenness and offers privileged views of a mountain range. The interior areas are spread over ​​80 square meters and complemented by terraces of 40 square meters and an additional 15 square meters of space on the upper floor. Next to the main house, there is an independent module of 20 square meters. Next to the main house, there is an independent module of 20 square meters.

The social area – which has an open kitchen – occupies the ground floor characterized by its flexibility, since thanks to the opening of a mobile partition, an additional bedroom can be accommodated. The main room is housed on the upper level and opens onto two terraces.

“Two double heights are located on the diagonals of the house, the first integrated to the social area and the second to the staircase,” Emilio López commented.

This project that stands out for having several angles and focusing on geometry mixes two types of materialities. On the one hand, the walls and reinforced concrete slabs refer to the suburban environment that surrounds the house. “The polished concrete floors, the marks of the formwork seen in the walls and the marks of the reliefs of the slabs create different textures”, described the architect.

On the other hand, the independent structure and the additional part on the upper floor of the main house – which is smaller – are characterized by their steel cladding and wooden framed windows.

Creating both a contrast and a complementarity, this architectural proposal reflects the avant-garde vision of Emilio López.
