Bamba, de Teresa & González: Shed house in Las Tunas (Ecuador)

In Las Tunas, a small town facing the Pacific, close to the Machalilla National Park, stand this 411-square-meter house designed by Juan Carlos Bamba, Ignacio de Teresa, and Alejandro González. The design explores the livability of a domestic space fragmented by three ramps, which in turn establish relationships with the slope of the terrain. Generating continuity and breadth, inclined planes alternate between the horizontal platforms that contain the conventional program (dining room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom…). Like a scaffold, a structure of canes wraps the central core of brick. The composition of concrete ramps forms triangles in the structure and makes simplification for cost reduction possible.
