Text description provided by the architects. This second residence is located in a small village on the river Esla banks on a site that had served as an orchard, with mature walnut trees and some fruit trees. Any references from neighbours made it difficult to establish any dialogue with existing constructions or follow any alignment.

Therefore, the house provides its autonomous set of references that match in the old orchard—parallel to the street, without touching the edge, take advantage of the privacy afforded by the old and precarious enclosing wall built with adobe and rubble to open the views towards the river. The volume is in a corner of the orchard to avoid having to cut any tree and leave the maximum free space to a lawn for lunches and family parties.

The house has a conventional program, where its communal parts enjoy the best views and the most space possible. The construction is very simple and economical.

The horizontal concrete elements were left exposed to establish a reference pattern in the façades and extend in overhangs that protect the most exposed façade in one side and cover the space to park the car in the other. The no bearing brick walls have been painted white, similar to the recent vernacular architecture of farm sheds and stables in the area.
