When the architect was commissioned to design this house, he found a plot surrounded by an old stone wall, which only allowed to perceive from outside the tree tops that were inside. Although the materiality and irregularity of this wall gave it a special character, the urban regulations obliged to extend the width of the street, so it had to be demolished. Deprived of this original element, the main objective of the authors was that the new home offered a coherent response to their environment.
A house-wall was designed that maintained the continuity with the existing urban fabric, adapting to the topography and the new layout of the street. Likewise, it offered the possibility of experimenting with a new typology, of linear character and developed in a single plant.
Throughout its development, the thickness of the wall varies. In some areas, its great thickness allows to lodge the most static or private elements, such as wardrobes, sinks, beds …
The design has been made taking into account sustainability parameters. The generous openings in the facade face south and east. To adjust their sunlight, sliding wooden lattices have been arranged.
In the bedrooms, between the two layers of the house envelope, small lookouts are created. Their vertical proportions make them a contemporary interpretation of the traditional balcony. They provide unimpeded continuity to the near view (the private garden), the intermediate view (the village fields) and the distant view.
The house aims to integrate into the pastoral surroundings. The yellowish-brown ridge at the front, the rugged soil and the Olive and Carob groves around it where horses graze, led to the choice of the materials: matching colors for the cement textured plaster and the timber shutters outside, light brown stone for the paving inside, and the wooden ceiling with its massive beams.
