Project

2010-2015

Oscar Tusquets’s Casa Victoria design on the Italian island of Pantelleria, built in the 1970s, with its rows of stone pillars reminiscent of the monumental nature of Greek temples, provides the starting point for this design.

 

An open, cloistered courtyard is surrounded by the house’s different structures. The courtyard itself then opens out on to San Carlos Valley, and the views of the church in the next village are framed by the stone columns and greenery.

 

This project reinterprets the principles of traditional Ibizan farmhouses, providing greater permeability, with the relationship with the external courtyards and the stone walls providing the initial idea for the project.

 

Stone, limestone, wood and metal make up the project’s building elements, in a dwelling that aims to be essential, direct and clear.

 

This project was carried out within deBM Arquitectura y Paisajismo.
