Traditional architecture by Ximena Tascón

The Colombian architect Ximena Tascón draws on the traditional styles of Latin America and emphasizes the following points:

  • Living without barriers
  • Modular house construction
  • Natural building ventilation
  • Large roofed terraces

The central module of Ximena Tascon’s architectural style is a high room with upper-level window ventilation. This arrangement allows for a largely natural ventilation of the building through the chimney effect.
The patio roof connects the interior and exterior, creating a spacious environment.
The dining room and living room are connected to the porch by two large folding doors. The covered patio offers plenty of space for furniture, tables, chairs and hammocks. On one side of the patio is the “Quincho”, the covered Paraguayan outdoor grill. Both grill and swimming pool are provided in each lot of the housing development.

Floor plans

The central module is the same for all versions. It consists of a living room, kitchen, dining room, pantry and laundry. The porch and a garage are also part of the main building. Behind the service area, there is room for hanging clothes in an open patio.
