Gabriel Rivera Arquitectos recently completed a single-family house in Tacuri, a place located in the Nayón area of the city of Quito. It is a fascinating place due to its microclimate, flora, fauna and exceptional view of the Cumbayá Valley.
Tacuri House respects the natural environment of its lot and draws inspiration from the surrounding Algarrobo trees; under the architectural concept of 'living amongst the trees.' This concept materialized in the construction process through adapting to the natural topography and keeping all of the Algarrobos on site. The result is a timeless house that feels as if it has grown from nature itself.
