When one walks around the neighborhood, she realizes the opacity of the houses built on the site. Are of stone, with a rocky feel, are hard structures, opaque, closed to the street. Rough walls, dotted with small openings. Almost insurmountable walls. In this early reading, it appears the first part of the project: maintaining the opacity to the street in this new building.
The spectacular views of the terrain to the west, has been another point of departure for this project. Some attractions and points of view not to be missed. It’s site as a watchtower, from where the view can be extended beyond the horizon. Thus, the strategy is: the house does not look to the street, you look to the landscape.
The building is characterized as a frame, like a shell, and is described as a concrete box with one side completely open, but with some sandstone uprights to protect the front of the sun. Towards the street these openings will be more limited, and to places of interest there will be obstacles. For what is presented as a simple, opaque, strong and clear geometrical volumes.
In contrast to the simple exterior, the interior becomes complex, unfolding bright, open and clear. The structure, as in the palaces of Mallorca – copies of old palaces of Florence-mercanttes is dominated by a central courtyard, square projection. The patio opens to the sky and into the external views.
The house revolves around the courtyard and in him. This courtyard is carved in the volume blind you first described. It is a courtyard dotted with light. We met with hanging gardens. A large porch accompanies our arrival. The interior is sculpted. Entries natural light are determined. The various views are increasing. The space extends to 9 feet total. Unexpected light leaks. Diagonal views. Gives space to house all of the character – fantasy-imagination, which appears as unexpected surprise.
