Details from the architects:

The main goal of the project was to create a low-cost and low-maintenance house that realised all the structural qualities of the material in which it was built to its full potential.

The design takes forward the idea of low-cost/low-maintenance, and applies this strategy to all the materials involved in the construction, while pushing to the limit both their technical and tectonic qualities: floor, windows, railings, etc., are done re-using materials that were previously used for pouring the concrete and for the rest of the construction process.

Perhaps, it is the space generated within inner and outer space what makes the house special. The house was designed to operate fully opened; it is then when the cantilever, this huge threshold, is fully occupied and becomes the central space of the house.

The house was awarded one of the 5 young architects honorable mentions (under 40 yr) at the Spanish Bienal of Architecture and were one of the 25th finalist including among others Nouvel’s Agbar Tower, Rogers’s Terminal 4, Miralles Santa Caterina Market or Chipperfield’s Americas Cup Building. We were also the youngest office awarded.
