Casa Sierra Fría by Esrawe Studio started as a request for an intimate space for a four-person family. In the process, it became a project looking to promote spaces of encounter and interaction and to foster an introspective relationship that is isolated from the exterior. The design includes a series of volumes, in a horseshoe shape, that reveal themselves and unwind along the way.

The architectural program includes a garden, four bedrooms, a studio, living room, dining room, kitchen, outdoor patio, wine cellar, and rooftop terrace.
The continuity of the façade, expressed by a single material, brick, contributes to the monolithic and introspective character of the concept.

The multiple volumes shaping it become the skin containing and framing privacy. When entering the house, a continuously-flowing space is revealed that surrounds the garden, which is the element that brings it all together. As the core of the design, the garden is visible from all of the rooms and common spaces.
