Single family detached house.

Objectives: this house project came about as a result of the owners' desire to work with building techniques from southern Spain. And so a project was born that encompassed a kind of nomadic settlement of small constructions, all set in a lush oasis-like garden in which to simply enjoy what life has to offer. Simple, age-old materials: brick, lime and wood, the building system is in the classic style of local techniques, of passive architecture, and the arrangement of the pavilions follows a path that carves out a series of patios, semi-patios and points of connection, to create alternate shaded areas that connect the different spaces thermally and so reduce energy consumption.
