"There is always another way of doing things and another way for living." This was the design mantra for the owner of this adobe home in Tumbaco, Quito, Ecuador. Designed by David Barragán and Pascual Gangotena, the house is set in the hillside of the Ilaló volcano among a hostile landscape...

The design included gray water construction to make waste water suitable for irrigation, a solar system for heating the water, and all the raw material used came out of the generated cut in the sloping land.
