While the Lluvia House is situated in a residential area, the monolithic dwelling conceals a vibrant, park-like garden. Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados wanted to make the verdant landscaping a focal point of its design. To do so, pieces of the solid volume were removed to create small courtyards within the voids. Large glazed panels placed along the rear incorporate the lush landscaping into the living spaces while flooding rooms with natural sunlight. The bright, airy atmosphere found throughout the interior offers a delicate contrast to the exterior's shadowy facade.
