The JOBER house is located in a pine forest in Jávea in an area very close to the sea. It is a rehabilitation of a small house typical of this area with a more traditional character. From here we study the architectural bases of this typology to reinterpret them and from its most basic concepts develop our project.
The presence of the old adjoining houses and the landscape of the Mediterranean pine forest leads us to rehabilitate this house based on its integration with the historical landscape of the area. Becoming part of the landscape by respecting the traditional architecture, but reinterpreted from modernity.
The main elements of the pre-existing traditional architecture are maintained using natural and neutral materials from austerity and sophistication. We work with natural lime stucco, ceramic tiles and wooden shutters, recovering the construction techniques typical of the area.
The JOBER House is a clean prism with a sloping roof based on the aesthetic criteria of the neighboring houses. Internally it develops from a piece that functions as a container for all of the house’s uses. At a visual level, there is no separation between the day and night areas. Inside, a cozy and very natural space is sought, choosing wood and a green ceramic, which reminds us of pine trees, as the main elements.
A dream house from the integration with the historical landscape of the place and the recovery of traditional architecture.
