Unbelievable terraced home on rugged terrain

Plan B Arquitectos together with architect Giancarlo Mazzanti have designed this incredible home featuring a garden roof design with spectacular views of a wetland in Sopo County, nearby Bogota, Colombia. Instead of designing the home as a large geometric volume, it unfolds along the high slope of the plot as a branched horizontal extension. With a mass expanse of glass, the flexible and modular design defines the structure. The home has been designed like the branches of a tree, where the house falls over the site, and branches into two arms that separate the program into different heights: above, the social arm, bridge and terrace, and down the arm to private rooms and services. The main trunk is a library that starts the journey staggered from the house. The arms are separated in two ways: the inner courtyard distances them through a native garden, and different heights allow that the zero level (ground level) of the former falls into place at roof level of the other. These two actions allow the ramifications to equally enjoy the distant view of the lake. Via
