Veliz Arquitecto: The concept of the “Black Butterfly” is a unique architectural proposal that seeks the harmonious integration between the house and the surrounding nature. This cabin is built on a stream, allowing the house to blend organically into the natural landscape and benefit from the constant flow of water running through it. One of the most interesting aspects of this proposal is the waterfall that is generated in the stream, which makes it possible to generate electricity in a sustainable way and reduce the carbon footprint of the house. The idea is to harness the hydroelectric power generated by the waterfall and use it to power lighting, heating and other electrical systems in the house. The Black Butterfly is also distinguished by its aesthetic design.  Black finishes give it a sleek, modern look, while the gabled roof and large glass windows allow for stunning views of the surrounding natural landscape.  Blacksmith details and organically patterned flooring add an artistic and creative touch to the home’s design.

The black butterfly is a symbol used in many cultures and mythologies, and is often associated with death, transformation, freedom, and beauty. This time we are inspired by the novel “El Perfume” by Patrick Süskind, reference is made to the “Black Butterfly”, a highly desired and difficult to obtain perfume.
