Capistrano

The program provided a clear design concept and through its study, a functional and practical solution was reached that explores the intersection of two volumes that allow the correct accommodation of public and private areas.

 

The juxtaposition of these volumes and their relationship with the void seek perspective, compositional and functional tensions that organize the spaces and routes of the house. The relationship between interior and exterior is always present; achieving the spaciousness of being within a warm and congruent space. A light structure composes the main volume of the house and integrates the relationship between the different voids generated, creating an evident tension between the built volume and the open space.

 

For this house for residential use, we sought to nuance the relationship between interior and exterior spaces through the juxtaposition of two volumes; one that contemplates the main areas of the house and another that contains a study. This juxtaposition of volumes and their relationship with the void seeks to generate a tension of perspective and composition, while optimizing the functionality of the spaces and routes of the house.

 

By having a permanent relationship between interior and exterior, a feeling of being in a warm and congruent place is achieved. The main volume integrates the relationship between the generated negative spaces, creating an evident counterpoint between the built volume and the open sky. The priority of this proposal is, at all times, to obtain an excellent spatial quality for the common areas of the house, while its aesthetic value lies in the rhythm and repetition of the construction elements.
