Veliz ArquitectoThe Nelumbo house is based on a house adapted to coalesce and germinate in an environment inserted into the rock of a cliff, providing views directed towards the river that flows between the hills, it is distinguished by pure and white volumes that stand out in terms of color  and shape based on the concept of a flower that is born and reproduces in a hostile environment generating vegetation around it, the curves of its roofs will also be used to channel the rains and take advantage of them based on irrigation needs and some basic questions of the  housing, the use of solar panels is a convenient alternative to make it as sustainable as possible.
