Mocoli House is a domestic sculpture in Ecuador

Orense Arquitectos combines white colour, cement, wood and glass for an introverted single family house in Samborondón, Ecuador.

Designed by Orense Arquitectos in Samborondón, Ecuador, Mocoli House takes its name from the island on which the property stands, which is a new exclusive residential area. Given the suburban context in which it is located, the house is designed as an introverted sculpture, to guarantee maximum privacy for the family living there.

Light is the element that shapes the white volumes, which dialogue with the raw materiality of cement, the warmth of wood and the lightness of glass. Compressed, dark rooms alternate with large, luminous spaces: an internal path starts from the entrance, conceived as a domestic "cave", and arrives in the master bedroom, where the light is screened by a teak screen that generates changing shadows.

Within the perimeter of the house, the interiors hybridise with patios and terraces, offering residents places of meditation, where comfort and harmony reign.
