The Terraza / Rancho Sierra Allende
Terrace “Rancho Sierra Allende” is a multifunctional recreative space which purpose is to offer its users the ability to get involved in various activities.
Its location allows getting involved in different social activities while enjoying the view and its surroundings, while taking advantage of its proximity to a water volume.
The main proposed materials like wood, clay and basalt, are regionally found, and its integration empowers the project.
In the meanwhile, the structure results in mixed elements of steel and wooden beams which were used as formwork and later on as structural elements.
The terrace was designed with the idea of keeping in touch with nature at all times, for that reason, permeability and glass were implemented; while the structure was supported by narrow columns in the habitable area, and pilotis as a support for leveling the floor to reach the optimal level and avoid water contact.
The covered area is used as a bar, which contains a double-heighted gable roof covered in steel, looking forward for its oxidation that would bring a warm feel and a low-maintenance finish.
The architectural program is composed by a living room connected to the exterior, which extends the social area with the terrace.
The exterior is equipped with granite-covered bar, serving as the dining room and food preparation area.
The function scheme is created by the amusement use and intense social activity por the destined design.
It counts with two main entrances on each extremity, one of these counts with a visual gesture of a clay lattice, while the other one contains a destined area for a bonfire.
The terrace´s design articulates between the forest path and the southern corner of the dam.
