In the construction of this beautifully contemporary family home, Gabriel Rivera Arquitectos pays homage to the natural environment of the Cumbayá Valley. The structure presents a multi-story design, spread out in three volumes and on a U-shaped plan. The idea was to create a "timeless house that feels as if it has grown from nature itself."

Gabriel Rivera Arquitectos strategically tap into soft, welcoming materials for the construction of the contemporary family home. Some main constituents of the building's makeup include honey-toned wood which is exceptionally balanced out by the industrial feel of the black metal and the concrete. These rawness-evoking materials, Gabriel Rivera Arquitectos is able to meet modern standards within the architecture and design industry.
