On a 20m x 40m. plot, the implantation seeks to minimize the footprint of the house to achieve a greater absorbent surface soil, and direct natural illumination of all north-facing areas of the house.

The resolution of the cross section allows incorporating the gallery insidet the built volume and qualifying the public area with a higher altitude.

On the ground floor the window system favors the expansion of the living room and the kitchen into the gallery. The access, toilet, sauna hydro-massage and the service area safeguard this huge ground floor from the street.

The stereotomic plinth made of reinforced concret confers solidity. Furthermore, the tectonic finish of the house with a steel frame system along with a metallic cover, complet the expressive-comstructive system of the house.

“We define stereotomic architecture as that one in which gravity is discountinuosly transferred, in a continuous structural system where the constructive continuity is completed. It´s a massive architecture, petreous, heavy. That one that sits on the soil as emerging from there. It´s the architecture that follow the light, that one that pierce the walls so the light could enter. It´s the architecture of the podium, the plinth. That one of the stylobate. It´s, summarizing, the cave architecture.” Campo Baeza.

“We define tectonic architecture as that one in which gravity is discountinuosly transferred, in a structural system with knots where the construction is syncopated. It´s a boney architecture, woody, light. That one that settle on the soil as raising on tiptoe. It´s the architecture that safeguard from light, that look after their hollow to control the light coming inside. It´s the shell architecture. The one of the abacus. It´s, summarizing, the architecture of the cottage.” Campo Baeza.”
