CAEaCLAVELES is a residential and hotel project developed
by the studio longo+roldan architects together with artist Emma Fernandez
Granada. Winner of Asturias Award for Architecture 2012, the project arises
from the search to preserve the permanence of landscape features on which to
act through a symbiotic architecture with the environment and linked to the
characteristic features of the area.
The small and unique building
stands on a plot of 8000 square meters, located in La Pereda, in Llanes,
Asturias. It is a privileged natural environment composed of the protected
landscape of the East Coast of the Sierra del Cuera, parallel to the sea, with predominantly
karst nature with numerous and mild slopes.
To reduce the impact on the
environment, the building is adapted to the particular topography recreating a
hill similar to the existing ones, conceived as an organic volume whose
interior space is projected in relation to the surrounding vegetation and open
to the forests around. Thus, the landscape flows through the exterior glass envelope
of this volume.
