From the architect. The simple house, situated in a village perched on a mountain overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, is located on a site not easily accessible, full of cherries and open views.

The planning regulations only allowed a small building to store agricultural tools not exceeding 25 m2 and a buried cistern to water of 50 m2 . The main space of this construction becomes in this case in a living room and kitchen, and upon it, taking advantage of the height permitted, one bedroom. Underneath, a studio, one bedroom and a bathroom occupy the space of the cistern. To allow the lighting of these underground spaces, two large skylights allow incoming daylight, while on the surface these two skylights become in seats.

To simplify the distribution of such a small space, one of the side walls gets thicker to accommodate storage spaces, cupboards and fireplace, leaving the rest of the space released.

The exterior of the house tries to blend with the environment. It uses local stone laid dry, following the construction system of the stone of the retaining walls of the terraces in the area.

Awesome, like its simplicity. Would love to see some photos from the basement levels and the effect of the skylights.

It gives me the idea of an hermitage.

neo · May 12, 2011

nice.
just curious to know how are the stones laid dry?
how do they stay intact when someone applies a force from inside.

Marcio Chris · May 02, 2013 02:54 AM

IT's a kind of stone work, all pieces are arranged in order to be stable and fixed by itself.
