Casa Albizia is located at the highest point of the exclusive neighborhood of El Poblado in the Andean city of Medellin, Colombia, South America. The house is part of the Vallados de Gratamira II subdivision, which is made up of 15 luxury residences that are surrounded by an environment of exuberant nature and the perfect climate that characterizes the City of Eternal Spring. Colombian architect Norberto Garcés Alarcón explains his creative inspiration and architectural axis as the magnificent Albizia Carbonaria tree, a native species, which rises 25 meters from the house: "The house provides an experience of respect and balance with the natural environment: a connection with the essence of life demonstrated through the beauty of harmonious coexistence. The design magnifies the Albizia tree and refers to the flora as a vital source for living." At the same time, the design seeks to integrate the daunting landscape with grace. It was quite an engineering challenge.
