The “Lago en el Cielo” single family house by David Ramirez

Lago en el cielo (translated as “Lake in the sky”) is the name of a beautiful residence located in Retiro, Antioquia, Colombia. A project by David Ramirez Arquitectos, the house occupies a surface of 352.0 square meters and it was completed in 2009. It’s a two-story, single family residence sitting in the middle of nature and offering views of La Fe dam.

The house is hidden by the rich vegetation and it sits in a very quiet and serene area. The connection with nature is very strong and it was of the main concerns while building the residence. The large glass windows allow panoramic views over the surrounding area and the beautiful landscape in the distance. The house has a simple and modern design that was adapted to the conditions on the site. It’s why the main entrance in on the upper level.

The upper floor contains an open plan zone that includes the kitchen, the dining room, the main lounge area and the guest bathroom. On the same level there’s also a bedroom with its own bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, as well as a terrace. The lower level contains the master bedroom with its own private terrace and the library. The atmosphere inside is warm and cozy and everywhere you look there’s a very strong connection with the outdoors.{pictures by Camilo Duque}.
