White ribbon rests above the stone wall

Tarragona’s historical stone construction tradition, as well as the image of the Roman city walls, made us decide to treat the house’s ground floor as a dry stone plinth emerging from the ground.

The pine forest where the land is located creates a series of vertical and repetitive shadowy traces of trunks, branches and leaves. The light that sifts through the forest generates pleasant atmospheres of lights and shadows.

The first floor’s white volume, as a purer and lighter piece, rests on the stone base. Like a white ribbon, it seems to break up softly on the south facade as voids, terraces, white lattices and pergolas appear. These elements filter the light, more geometrically, but generating similar atmospheres as those of the natural environment. On the bedrooms’ terraces the lattices provide us more privacy.

The slightly sloping terrain forces us to compose the house on 3 levels, the entrance, the ground floor and terraces and garden. Integrating the position of the house to the existing ground. Its L-shaped plan embraces the space, creating a visually enclosed environment, whilst integrating it in the natural one. This move converts the rest of the garden in an area of ​​enjoyment.

The two very contrasting types of facades, the white and the stone, are related in balance. The white facade made with a single layer of mortar and paint on thermal insulation panels prevents thermal bridges and guarantees the climate efficiency of the house. The stone facade is placed on prefabricated concrete panels. The prefabrication allows for a relative easy in construction system, reducing time, cost and waste generated on site.

The ground floor layout encompasses the house’s main rooms: living room, dining room and kitchen. This floor possesses wide-open spaces, giving maximum visual continuity with the outside terraces. The first floor overlooks the sea. This floor hosts the bedrooms, forming terraces to south protecting the interior facade from direct solar radiation during the warmer months.

Casa VN by Guillem Carrera Arquitecte

Alella is a municipality located between the Mediterranean Sea and the coastal mountain range: in a relatively short distance, the orography of the territory rises from the sea level to 400 meters high. Due to this situation, sloping areas were historically organized on terraces stabilized with stonewalls, to be cultivated. The territory outside the urban nucleus was structured by means of large farms, where large houses with different architectural, landscape, social and heritage interests were built in each one of them; those who gave name to each one of the zones that occupied. Subsequently, during the 20th century, the demographic pressure and the change in the economy led to the appearance of several urbanizations that meant the fragmentation of the territory.

The housing lot is located in an enclave between a fragmented and consolidated area with recently built buildings and another area occupied by a historical estate of the ones described above. So that it transitions between a landscape before the 20th century and another one of the present century. In its initial state, the lot presents a composition more typical of the historical landscape than fragmented. Being stabilized horizontally by means of three longitudinal containment walls – north / south direction – of three meters of height each, that structure the terrain on three terraces. It also contains an old dry stone chapel and a series of vegetation and consolidated own trees, with an interest in being conserved.

Maintaining the original character of the place becomes the main project premise. To preserve the soul and the morphology, to preserve each one of those things that make it unique and characteristic: the terraces, the retaining walls, the different elements of pre-existing vegetation and the dry stone chapel. These elements are delimited and identified to be preserved in the plant and once they have been delimited, a respectful implementation of housing directly on the existing land is established, so that the house coexists and interacts spatially and functionally with these elements. The resulting ensemble seeks to be a whole, timeless and heterogeneous, that is part of the place and the landscape. Likewise, it is proposed to naturalize the unbuilt spaces and rehabilitate and re-landscape landscaping.

The housing program consists of a living room, dining room, kitchen, rooms, studios, bathrooms, cinema, wellness area, parking for vehicles and spaces for storage, services and facilities; with a constructed surface resulting from 869m2, and therefore, a size more typical of the old stately houses existing in the municipality of Alella than of the houses built in the last half century. Due to the dimensions of the program, a strategy of implementation and hybrid landscape integration is included which includes two concepts: harmonization and monumentalization. The harmonization in terms of using the same stone in the area with which the chapel is made to finish pre-existing retaining walls, plant new Mediterranean vegetation in line with the existing one and place wood and stone together with elements of water. And the monumentalization to create a monolithic structure of reinforced concrete, punctually supported by steel pillars and lime mortar lined with the will to be a Mediterranean sculpture that emerges from a natural field that maintains its historical roots.

When analyzing the program and the size of the housing required, the volumetry is implemented through two floors in each preexisting terrace, concentrating the larger volumetrics on the two lower terraces, so that the terrace most visually exposed has the smaller volumetry. The house is structured in four differentiated levels: 181, 184, 187 and 190. The floor level 181 contains parking, wellness space, and storage areas; the floor level 184 contains the day zone; the floor level 187 contains the night area and the floor level 190 contains a study that connects with a green terrace. Each one of the rooms focuses on the different visuals that the landscape offers: the sea, the valley, the olive fields and the small neighbouring pond. As for the pre-existing stonewalls, once rehabilitated and covered with dry stone from the area, they go through the house coinciding with the most relevant spaces. The covers are landscaped with varying degrees of inclination, with the intention of visually collecting the landscape, pretending to be part of it and also pretending that from a bird sight the presence of the house is not perceived, but rather a completely naturalized terrain.

The housing structure itself provides solutions of passive solar architecture, through porches of different dimensions and pergolas of wooden beams on the southern facade. Rainwater from landscaped covers is collected in buried deposits and reused for irrigation of the unbuilt garden area. In addition, the house integrates a system of air conditioning through aerothermal technology and double-flow ventilation, which, together with the natural thermal insulation of the covers, the home automation installation, the construction system itself and the exhaustive study of the composition of the different skins of the building; they have made this house to have obtained an energy certification A.

The equipment of the house is resolved by incorporating integrated furniture that enhances the spaces in which it is part. Regarding the final materiality, it is proposed that this generates a cozy, friendly and connected home with the outside. Made with openings and pavement with stony texture that goes through the house from outside to inside and from inside to outside, and the use of neutral colours and warm wood for the rest of the materials.

Type: Single-family house

Location: Ses Torres, Ibiza, Spain
Plot Surface Area: 450 m2
Project Area: 250 m2

Year: 2015

Project Team: Fernando Usó Martín, María Mezquita Vidal
Contractor: BFM Aedificatoria
Structure: Estructuras Singulares | UPV · David Gallardo

The project is located in a small plot urbanization with a turn in the rear façade.

The proposal tries from the very beginning to ensure that the house enjoys the views of the beach but achieves a certain privacy. A closed and massive upper volume open to the southwest orientation allows you to take advantage of the views of the Dalt Vila and Ibiza and protect yourself from views in the other directions. In addition, in the rear elevation, a break is generated in the ground floor that is related to the one that presents the plot serving this gesture of access to the dwelling.

In the ground floor there is an open and transparent element that allows cross ventilation. This level is situated as a podium to enjoy the views and breezes of the place. The swimming pool and the terraces are an extension of the interior space.

The house of the three trees by Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos

INFOGRAPHICS / 3D VIDEO3D Visual Effects



Santa Gertrudis is an inner core of the island with great attractiveness and full life. The plot is situated on a boundary between the village and nature and has a markedly longitudinal geometry, which conditions the proposal. On the eastern boundary there is a road that separates the plot, but that spatially manages to enlarge the plot.

The project assumes an introverted character and seeks to generate visuals controlled towards the architecture itself avoiding lack of privacy with neighbors. All this is achieved with a resource of long Mediterranean tradition, the courtyard, a protected outdoor space. As a common thread, three courtyards with trees organize the house and its visuals. The swimming pool participates in this and enters the large courtyard of the day area. With all this, we were able to introduce green into the house and generate attractive visuals.

House in la Cerdanya by Dom Arquitectura

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Cerdanya, Lérida, Spain
Area: 334 m2
Year: 2018



Architects: Dom Arquitectura
Interior Design: Blanca Elorduy

Film: Santi Serrano



The land is situated in Cerdanya’s area, in an old settlement where rehabilitation began 15 years ago. Currently it consists of 5 houses. The plot is surrounded by a privileged natural environment with astonishing views of valley and the mountain range of the Cadí natural park.

The project is constrained by strict construction regulations that govern the region and that gear the project towards the use of ‘traditional Cerdanya’ exterior materials. The ‘ceretan’ home seeks integration with its context and amongst the surrounding existing constructions by means of using materials and basic elements of the local construction. Therefore, any construction should use locally sourced stone for the walls and artisanal clay tiles for the sloping roofs. It should incorporate as well the ‘era’ or garden, the porches and the access through the ‘ceretan’ gate. The challenge was set: to build a home that will marry harmoniously very traditional elements, with a contemporary and cozy atmosphere.

As a start, we decided to build the home with a wooden structure, facing the project from a bioclimatic strategy, to achieve an efficient and sustainable construction. Thanks to this system we managed to reduce the construction waste materials. Hence the project included 3 different materials: the stone and the clay tiles as stated in the regulations and the timber as structural material.  This set us up to try and resolve all the design elements with these 3 materials. Later, we added iron to the material triad in order to resolve some joints and encounters and to design luminaires adding cohesiveness and singularity to the details of the interior.

A steep slope of the 20% characterizes the site, running down from the street level. We intended to set out the whole house in one story and in level with the ‘era’ in order to enjoy it as much as possible.  Therefore, we proposed to make only the garage and the access hall at street level and the rest of the house sits 2.6mts below that level. This decision entailed to bury part of the house fitting it into the topography.

The plot has a quasi squared shape oriented towards the south-east.  This feature allows us to easily create an L-shaped plan with two perpendicular wings.  Those rest on the plot’s boundaries and create the day area with the main rooms and the night area with the bedrooms.

The stone wall slightly protrudes above the roofs and highlights the simple shapes guided by the plot’s shape. The wall draws a series of slopes and counter slopes providing the house with a singular geometry.

The roofs of both wings converge towards the ‘era’ creating continuous porch that surrounds the house and generates a wide lounge area in one of its ends.

Connecting both the night and the day wings is a two-story volume, the only one whose slope is oriented towards the exterior, creating in such a way an access porch.

The exterior elevation is continuous and made in stone in its totality except from two instances where the wall sets back: at the bedroom’s area and at the porch. When these gestures take place, the walls appear cladded in wood as to show the relevance of the wood as main construction material that emerges once the stone is eliminated. The same happens in the access volume at street level, where the setback is cladded in wood in contrast to the stone volume.

In the traditional rural architecture of the region, the houses where enclosed towards the exterior in a gesture of protection, their occupants didn’t need to see the areas where they had been working all day. This project imitates those gestures closing itself towards the street and the immediate neighbour on the north face. Nevertheless, it aims on the contrary to open up to the ‘era’, the garden and the views. In this manner any of the interior and exterior areas can enjoy the natural landscape that surround the house.

The primitive as well as traditional act of gathering around the fire, as moment of family togetherness, was central concept to the design. The wide, open space of the ‘day area’ goes on to generate smaller semi-enclosed corners through the use of the furniture, enfolding the spaces to create cozy atmospheres typical of the mountains.  The couch that frames the fireplace, the bench, the table, the kitchen isle, set out the rhythm of the diverse spaces within a visually continuous space.

The access to the house on foot is at the street level, 2.6 meters above the residence. Once inside the access hall, we find a windbreaker, typical element from la Cerdanya. The large sliding door allows us by opening it to enlarge the access hall or to diminish the heat loss by closing it during the winter months. At the end of the hall towards the stairs to the main floor, a window frames the views of the valley. Going down the stairs another window frames the mountains of the Cadí natural park.

The main floor, the lower ground, is in L shape and is formed by 2 clearly differentiated wings: the day wing completely open and facing south-east, and the night wing, more compartmentalized and oriented south-west. There is a 55cm difference in level between the two wings to adapt the project to the site’s slope.

The corridor to access the bedrooms, is a narrow and tall space where a large and long skylight is placed along its ceiling providing the otherwise residual space with lively natural light. The corridor wall is made with natural clays, that help us to control de interior humidity.

Three identical bedrooms are designed, planned for the three kids in the family. Nevertheless, currently two of those rooms are unified to generate a bigger room. This is intended that now that they are still young and can sleep together, this design move will allow creating a great play area. The other room is used as guest room and at the end of the wing the master bedroom is placed.

The restrooms are incorporated into the bedrooms, with the shower and WC enclosed and the rest open. Being them placed towards the exterior walls, the enclosed spaces have natural lighting and ventilation. Moreover, nice views of the mountains can be seen from the shower.

In the master bedroom the same logic was followed, incorporating a bathtub and a lower window besides it to enjoy the views while taking a bath.

The timber structure and the isolation of the volume pushed the design to rethink about hermetic enclosure, transpiration and air renovation. We accomplished that by a double flow heat recovery system. This system allows the house to ‘breathe’ and guarantees the continuous interior air salubrity.

The wood is the main character throughout the house interiors. Fir planks clad walls and ceilings and natural oak floating parquet covers the floors, all with the same tones. The window and door frames are in pie wood with mat finish and the interior cupboards, closets, doors and the outside blinds are painted with an ecological and ‘breathable’ paint.

The walls’ and roofs’ structure is in pinewood. Therefore, by means of one material treated in different ways we resolve most of the interior elements and finishes.  The exterior wood is treated larch. The rest of the materials are the above-mentioned stone and clay tiles, as well as iron as a polyvalent material.  Iron is used in the exteriors as window frame and as roof gutter and in the interiors for some details such as lighting fixtures, the fireplace, stairs, and other finishes. Reinforced concrete is only used for the retaining walls and foundations.

This family residence for an art collector is located on a relatively flat, 2-acre park-like property characterized by hundreds of evenly spaced small oak trees.  The area is tremendously arid and hot in summer, an environmental condition that led to a design that uses both the building orientation on the site and cantilevered masses protect the glass areas of the house.

The house is organized on the site as a series of open and closed volumes with spaces between that become entry points, transitions and covered outdoor living spaces.  The entry is under a projecting porte cochere and leads to a glass enclosed 2 story atrium which frame specific art works from the owners’ collection.  A gallery leads one to the main living/ dining space, a indoor-outdoor double height space that opens completely to the pool courtyard and terrace to the South and to views over the park-like ground to the North. Offices, guest suites and services anchor this grand open space to the East. The family/ media room, kitchen and covered outdoor dining area frame the space to the West, also protecting the living/entertaining areas from the low Western sun.  A generous master suite and family bedrooms comprise the upper floor.  A ten car garage, services and staff rooms complete the subterranean basement level.

As in the famous Lewis Carroll tale, Wall House is not what it seems. Is it a fortress that closes itself to the world? Or is it an isolated place that avoids all communication with the exterior? Not at all! Wall House communicates with its formalized solid skin, an existing concern in the city. It is the expression of those thoughts: “the all judging peeping tom”, “windows that looks towards the place where nobody wants to be watched”, “opened facades show only false and preconceived realities”.

Wall House is the physical expression of a family’s life; a large shell protecting everyone that inhabits it. This shell embraces four patios which are developed three dimensionally. It allows the inhabitants to enjoy infinite freedoms internally, the patios, as air bites; penetrate to the terraces and the most intimate rooms. A large lattice develops into the volume and creates a welcoming area, in the public ground level. This skin encloses the guest living room which is surrounded by gardens and terraces. Away from any uncomfortable view, at this same level, the family shares their own private luminous oasis.

The three daughters can develop their private life around three patios into the highest level of the house. A shared living room is extended to the terrace where in the mild weather nights, friends and family can relax, chat, eat and socialize. The open air terrace is connected with the mother’s private garden on the lower level without any visual connections. Cantilevered terraces and gardens are protected by shade, just as in an oasis in the desert. Vegetation and greenery are able to grow and climb freely on all the different levels. The house creates free zones where exploration may occur, allowing its inhabitants to know their selves better, ultimately protecting themselves to become free.

Concretus house by Singular Studio

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Alicante, Spain

Area: 200 m2
Year: 2016


FIRST INTERNATIONAL PRIZE IN ITS CATEGORY ‘RESIDENTIAL HOUSING’ IN CEMEX BUILDING AWARD 2017


Architects: Singular Studio

Interior design: Pepe Cabrera

Photography: © David Frutos



The idea from which the project developed, was born from a trip to the client’s country, where the need arose, in a certain way, to reproduce the architectural tradition of soviet brutalism that historically has been so present in their lives… and therefore, came Le Corbusier and his bêton brut as project leitmotiv.

After the initial ideas, we did a deep reflection between what the house should be on its own, and what it would be because of the place in which it’s framed, an impressive natural landscape facing the sea with a balcony looking over the Mediterranean. Thus, the project emerges as a juxtaposition of ideas that solve different needs by building a massive volume that clearly expresses the customer’s wishes, like a punch at the table.

One of the main challenges to be solved would be to provide the house with the maximum possible privacy while not blocking the exceptional sea views of the plot. Therefore, after evaluating the variables of access, orientation, views, bioclimatic hypothesis, privacy and the strong slope of the plot, we decided a geometry whose plant would be an “L” shape, where the northeast facade is transparent, i.e. a large window that turns into a lookout to the sea, and the rest of the facades, are opaque, massive, pure concrete that ensures the necessary privacy regarding the neighborhood. In addition, thanks to cross ventilation, thermal mass, solar protections and a detailed study of shadows, an efficient home was achieved, with very low energy consumption.

In this sense, a particularity of this dwelling, is to have built it without having used a single brick… all the facades and partitions of the house have been made of exposed concrete executed in-situ, as a coherent denouement to the aforesaid bêton brut.
The house, which was conceived together with our architects friends Guste and Algis from Kancas Studija of Lithuania, offers a unique answer to different problems, clearly separating the more public areas from the private ones, as well as the night program from the day.

The house is composed of two floors, on the ground floor is located the day program, except for the main bedroom, which is inserted in the northwest façade. However, the night program is distributed on the first floor, where the garage and the main access of the house are also located, due to the need of access to the top of the plot. In the intersection zone of the two wings you can find the hall and the vertical nucleus of communication in double height, articulating the distribution of the rooms of both plants.

In the exterior, native vegetation has been used and the original terraces of the plot have been restored, achieving maximum integration of the house in the natural context in which it is framed.

House rehabilitation in Aiguablava, Begur by MANO Arquitectura

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Aiguablava, Begur, Costa Brava, Spain

Year: 2014



Architects: MANO Arquitectura

Architect in Charge: Sebastian Machado, Victoria Esborraz

Photographer: Luis Carbonell



From an existing house it is considered that the most important to maintain are the views towards the Mediterranean and outer space. It is proposed to open the entire facade of the apartment in the public area – living, dining, kitchen – and protect it from the sun with an outer pergola that establishes the transition between outer space and interior space. This action allows a redistribution of the spaces privileging the interior views.

This house is located in the village of Alboraya, in the border area between the urban grid and a great extension of a vegetable and tiger nut garden.

BETWEEN MEDIANS

It is a house between medians located on the corner of a residential block and therefore enjoys the convenience of urban housing and at the same time, it has its broad views over the orchard that fades into the horizon.

SCULPTING THE VOLUME

To resolve this project it is proposed a clean and geometric surrounding, white and abstract to which, will be applied some perforations that generate the openings of the house. These subtractions reveal a wooden interior of great warmth that contrasts with the purity of the rest of the facade.

The splatters of wood marked the accesses, both the pedestrian and vehicular, the balconies of the kitchen and the living room and large terrace- vantage point that crown the housing. The rest of the gaps are closed with motorized planks of white krion on its outer face which when opened, show the interior of the wood.

REINTERPRETATION OF THE GARDEN DIVISION

The facade is the result of the combination of a few large white cloths of krion, some splayed arched of IROKO wood, and the slats, which, according to their position, texture and materiality varies. All these elements are arranged within a sealing system that binds the whole.

The divisions of the facades and the combination of materials and textures create a fixture that reminds of the typical subdivisions of the vegetable garden.

PERFORATIONS IN THE SURROUNDING

A hipped roof to reinforce the surrounding abstract of the house prolongs the nature of the facade. To the cover of the assembly is subtracted two volumes that make up the terrace and the patio.

THE VANTAGE POINT OF THE ORCHAD

It proposes a house closely linked to the landscape thanks to the creation of spaces intended for contemplation.

From the large window of the living room and from the terrace you get a panoramic view over the orchard that fades into the horizon.

BIMATERIAL

The nature of the project is characterized by its multi-colorism. On a white canvas are highlighted some areas of wood and dark stone that marked the subtractions that are applied to the volume.

NATURAL TONES

The light areas are materialized with white krion in the, a pavement of large format in a tone of sand and walls and ceilings painted in white. The dark areas are covered with panels of IROKO wood in walls, ceilings and cabinets and a dark brown stone on the pavement. The furniture is always coordinated with the tone of the space it occupies.

VEGETAL CONNECTION

In the center of the house is located a patio where a vegetal wall articulates vertically around the setting.

In addition to shedding light on the center of the house, it oxygenates and refreshes the environment thanks to the green texture generated at each plant.


SUSTAINABLE BEAUTY

Since its foundation, this home has been designed with sustainability criteria and has been awarded the energy A certification.


The housing is supplied by a system of wells of geothermal energy. In one of the slopes of the deck is placed a plate of a vacuum tube that provides supply to the elevator for low consumption, that connects the housing vertically.

The air conditioning is resolved through underfloor heating combined with air conditioning. It has been taken into account that each room has natural cross-ventilation. In addition, there is a ventilation system that controls the humidity from the air and it is constantly renewed from taking outside air. Some filters are placed in the entry to avoid dust and possible odors.

The façade openings are protected by a system of motorized and steerable planks. In the he large glazed surfaces, a double glass has been arranged with thermal and acoustic insulation with solar control. In addition, the housing has a surrounding of ten centimeters of rock wool, which ensures a high thermal insulation.

All the lighting is dimmable led integrated in the architecture, so that the power consumption is very low.

The whole house is controlled by a management system of home automation, from the air-conditioning and under floor heating to the degree of intensity of the illumination of the housing.

Cottage in the Vineyard by Ramón Esteve Estudio

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Fontanars dels Alforins, Valencia, Spain
Year: 2017
Area: 414.74 m2



Architect: Ramón Esteve

Collaborating Architects: Anna Boscà, Victor Ruiz

Collaborators: Tudi Soriano, Patricia Campos, Borja Martos

Design Collaborators: Nacho Poveda

Technical Architect: Emilio Pérez

 

Constructor: COVISAL FUTUR S.L.

Project Manager: Gonzalo Llin

Production and audiovisual: Alfonso Calza



The house is located in the municipality of Fontanars, on the outskirts of the village surrounded by large acreages. The project seeks the maximum environmental and landscape integration because of its border location between a zone of pine forests and the grapevine fields, being diluted practically in the vegetation. To this contributes the decision to develop the entire program in a single plant, in addition to the material chosen, which provides shade consistent with the place.

GENERATING FORMS

“This countryside retreat generated from the idea of a standard traditional rural house with its pitched roof, applying a new concept of space afterwards”.

Ramón Esteve

The geometry consists in mapping the line edge that defines the traditional house to extrude it after, forming an envelope under which will be developed throughout the project. That line-concept, turned into a long concrete shell that organizes the dwellings ́ program and is crossed transversely by the rooms materialized as pine wood containers.

The project seeks the maximum integration landscape and environment, due to the location of the border between an area of pine forest and the fields.

“The house is composed by two monolithic structures forming two large blocks made of different materials, the first one made of white concrete, both inside and outside, cut across by structural surfaces made of thermally-modified pine wood”.

Ramón Esteve

ENVIROMENT AND LANDSCAPE

The access to the plot is through a path surrounded by olive trees. In the background, you can see the house, hidden by groups of cypresses, poplars and pine trees. You enter the house through one of the wooden structures. The concrete central space is a fluid common area dominated by a big replace towards which all the rooms are opened. From the inside, the views are framed by the pine wood surfaces that intersect the central space. By being considered a second residence, both these structures and the porches can be totally locked when the house is not inhabited.

SPACES

A wide porch, placed at the end of the house, completes the home. It provides a lounge area linked to a dual landscape, on one side the immediate views of the pine forest, on the other side those of the vineyard. The house is modulated by the timber planks of 20 cm. that built the wooden boxes and also the timber formwork for pouring concrete.

Also the pinewood furniture and the carpentry for this retreat have been specifically designed following the same modulation. Both materials, white concrete and timber, are coherent with the nature of the structure.

GREEN TECHNOLOGY

“Environmentally, it follows the guidelines for a passive house. Appropriate means are available to take advantage of renewable energy through the use of panels of solar energy, energy supply from biomass or collecting and storing drinkable rain water”.

Ramón Esteve

The energy saving is optimized thanks to the materials used and a thermal insulation of rock wool with great insulating ability. Also, the installation of lighting is energy-effcient due to a control system that optimizes the use of natural light.
