Text description provided by the architects. A site, a place without clear references, a gently sloping meadow leading down to the river, a relatively distant rural town, without orientation to spectacular views. 

Master Plan
Master Plan

The property finds accommodation and scale across 5 yards being one of those gently places between the domestic and the meadow, between human and nature.

Time in its ancestral dimension of changing seasons and climatic variations, the grey sky, clean blue, sometimes menacing, it enters the house through large skylights to make it an authentic reference site.

Elevation, Isometric

A perimeter wall of concrete block clothes together as a small settlement, with a certain defensive character, introverted character while the large skylights move togards the distant landscape to take to the nonexistent to conquer the celestial vault view.

The materials used to build the house are the same that were used for the rural popular architecture, its sheds, its storehouses and its farm fences. Consumables, with deep textures, changing over the time, with a certain age waiting for the moss to be colonized, lichen, the burning sun or the darkened rain.
