From the architect. Relationship with the surrounding

The plot is shaped like the trunk of a long pyramid in plan, it is almost flat and it measures 2 ha. It is divided in two parts, one, on the north side, covered by a vineyard, and the other, on the lower south side, where there are both deciduous (chestnuts, walnuts) and evergreen trees (pines and Holm oaks).

The dwelling is placed in the centre of the plot, dividing it in two like a diaphragm. It is a pure concrete box opened in the middle, where the living is placed, by two large French doors (9 x 2,5 m) in both North and South faces which allow a complete transparency that visually connects the vineyard with the trees.

Composition

Two interior elements, bathrooms, installations and kitchen, divide the house in a living room at the centre and two bedrooms, one on each end.

The openings in the concrete volume form two visual axis shaped like a cross, one transversal across the living and another longitudinal that links the bedrooms.

At the same time, the pool area, intersected with the volume of the house, enhances the continuity between the inside and the outside.

Clever linear "country house" in Zamora is simple in form and stunning in execution! http://t.co/UWCHyTWl @plethoraapp

I just say perfect! Real architecture... u say easy... but in reality the easy drawing is the most difficult, when u want to hide everything but me expressed as "Spanish sculpture"...

pues si que es aburrida, pero no estoy de acuerdo en que se la catalogue como spanish lo que sea... mira si no las casas que han hecho recientemente Andres Jaque o Anton Garcia Abril, no tienen nada que ver con esta simpleza...
