House in Ayora by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

“The building is located in a landscape of unique beauty, the results has natural and obvious growth. The mountain, topped by a castle, is covered by a blanket housing through a system of aggregation by simple juxtaposition of pieces generated fragmented target tissue that adapts to the topography. The project proposed to integrate into the environment, respecting their coping strategies of to the environment and materials away from the mimesis that would lead to misleading historicism, and constructively showing the time to meet the requirements of the ‘new people. “In this way the house is conceived as a piece placed on the ground, joining in the gap. A piece is built white lime the same, the same of the primacy on the massive opening, which takes the edge of the site to have their holes and integrated into the fragmentation of the environment. The indoor space is divided by the void that is the core of communication cut parallel provision of the mountain without touching it. On the ground floor and cellar are the garage was volume two floors with it have four rooms. Two of them, the room at the intermediate level are open to the private street, the other two on the upper level overlook above-the houses opposite, the valley of Ayora. One of them, the study is opened in turn to the central double height, incorporating it into their space. Across the gap, and the mountain, are the garden areas “facing the day illuminated by light reflected on the south slope of the castle oxidized.”
