Text description provided by the architects. Building a villa

There is a very important moment in every couple´s life: the moment of constructing their own house. It´s a hard process, full of illusion and also, of course, difficult decisions that pushes the relationship and the couple´s economy. With this in mind, dooa arquitecturas took the responsibility of designing and building their home. And the result is casajijona, a project that responds to the environment of croplands at different levels.

Its horizontal design generates an interesting dialog with the surrounding landscape. The vegetation enters in land occupied by the villa, recovering the old existing cropland. Once built it became the small-big project for our friends.

The experience of living in the villa is aimed to create a continuous flow between interior and exterior and vice versa. Its design gives an abstract structure to the wise landscape that surrounds the building site. This way, the transition interior-exterior occurs in several intermediate rooms, half-exterior half –interior, which have a more domestic scale and which act as an interface with the existing agricultural landscape.
