In a unique development, surrounded by houses, a piece is proposed that is closed to the outside by means of a permeable brick wall to open towards the interior of the plot. The house is laid out across a series of different patios that function as transition elements between the different areas and the skylights that create different lights depending on the uses.
The house is made up of a one-story concrete fold. On the façade plane, we created a variable skin of manual brick that is modified according to each area’s requirements. A skin that stretches until it disappears and perforates the house to become a part of it, an active and living skin. At the same time, skylights are created that allow us to introduce different types of lighting depending on the uses needed.
A house is created on the ground floor, very much in contact with the earth, where the limits between exterior and interior are blurred, in which the landscape becomes an active part of everyday life, creating our own micro-landscapes, our patios, like bubbles and elements of transit and decompression A fluid route is created through the patios that in turn characterize each of the home’s main areas, and function as transitional elements, giving each room a different atmosphere. These landscapes intensify with the changes of light from the different skylights.
Se crea un recorrido fluido a través de los patios que a su vez cualifican cada una de las zonas principales de la vivienda, y funcionan como elementos de transición dotando a cada estancia de una atmósfera diferente.
Estos paisajes se intensifican con los cambios de luz de los diferentes lucernarios.
This brick skin, with a very natural character, with a very special texture and impermeable to inclement weather, provides privacy to certain rooms and bathes them in a pixelated light, as well as forming skylights through which light penetrates. Brick also acts as a second skin that comforts and gives the house a more domestic atmosphere, a greater sensation of home, compared to the robustness and hardness of the main concrete envelope.
A fluid route through the patios of each of the house’s main areas, characterizing each one.
