Alto de las Palmas, Envigado, Antioquia
La Casa en el aire (the house in the air) and Builes are located on el alto de las Palmas, south of the department of Antioquia. The House in the air is composed of three volumes of wood paneling Prodema ProdEX. This home creates an intimate relationship with the surrounding environment, through open spaces that open to the outside allowing the forest and the infinite horizon get into every space of the house. Moreover, the Builes house consists of two levels where the Prodema coating is protagonist on the first floor.
According to the architect Andres Uribe, these projects shows that is possible to make modern architecture without competing with the environment, seeking that the volume of the houses in harmonizes with the landscape through the materiality of the house, as in this case where the Prodema ProdEX correctly mimics the natural environment.
