A 450 sqm house on Tenerife participates in the 3rd International Golden Trezzini Awards for Architecture and Design.

The Canary Islands, also known as simply the Canaries, are a Spanish archipelago and the southernmost autonomous community of Spain located in the Atlantic Ocean. They are known internationally for their warm and pleasant climate, as the “Islands of Eternal Spring”. Tenerife is the largest and most populated island of the eight Canary Islands. It is here where a project by 2020 Golden Trezzini Awards participants is located.

YS + 2 House by OTROestudio arquitectos, nominated in the “Best Constructed Private Residence” category, is a detached house inserted in a 1000m2 plot, located in Playa Paraíso, in the municipality of Adeje (Tenerife, Canary Islands). It is a very quiet urban area, whose main feature is its spectacular views towards the island of La Gomera. The house is 450m2 over three floors, with a swimming pool and green spaces.

OTROestudio’s concept is two blind planes that protect and privatize an interior space without limits that devours the landscape and makes it own. Under this concept, the exterior view is formed by a visible, large, reinforced concrete structure with geometric shapes and inclined lines that interrupt and move floating in the air, like a hard skin that shelters an interior space that breaks and dilutes its limits. Two irregular volumes that shelter an intimate and infinite patio. The façade of the building is a kind of sculpture made up of two elements: an entrance porch that gives access to the plot and further back the blind volumes of the house.

OTROestudio arquitectos is an architectural firm formed by a Fernando Ojeda and Gabriela Troncoso, having started in Argentina in 2000 and based on Tenerife since 2008.
