Compact House with Unusual Shape in Colombia

Designed by architect Alberto Gonzalez, Manuel Villa is a compact house that you wouldn't expect to see on your stroll through the suburbs of Bogota, Colombia. This unusual house stands out for its unconventional shape and contemporary take on family living. The compact house design features a polyhedron shape, clad in a black exterior with a huge window taking up an entire side of the house. As if the structure was cut open on one side, the window opens onto a spacious deck and grassy garden. Additional windows and a skylight flood the interior with natural light and passively ventilate. Inside, this compact design makes the most of its limited footprint with an efficient use of space, and extends to an outdoor living room to really stretch the home’s square footage to the max.
