Twenty-one plateaus and seven volumes tell the story of this house.


The aim of the project is to give a new and even identity to a house belonging to the same family for several generations. The original house formed by the aggregation of different interventions at different times, with different construction systems. Each of the rooms in the house describes a moment in life of this family story. Thus it was essential to maintain the structure, spaces, uses, garden and memories, presenting them in a new way.
The further layer built in the history of this place employs new volumes used for new parts of the program. In this way leisure areas are projected, containing always the scale of the building and are presented as a sort of aggregation of small parts, which draws courtyards and narrows areas, as the traditional Mediterranean architecture does.
The interior respects the intermediate levels system producing a large spatial heterogeneity in rooms with a wide variety of sizes and heights. The supporting structure of the original house is housed inside the furniture that has the same gray shade as the trunks of some of the species that inhabit the garden.
The house is woven both among the trees and among the good memories that live in this pine forest.

Veintiuna mesetas y siete volúmenes cuentan la historia de esta casa.


El proyecto consiste en dar una identidad nueva y uniforme a una casa que pertenece a la misma familia durante varias generaciones. La vivienda original constituida por la agregación de distintas intervenciones realizadas en épocas distintas , con sistemas constructivos distintos. Cada uno de los espacios de la casa narra un momento en la historia de esta familia. De esta forma era esencial mantener la estructura, los espacios, los usos, el jardín y los recuerdos, presentándolos de una forma renovada.
El nuevo estrato construido en la historia de este lugar emplea nuevos volúmenes para las nuevas partes del programa. Se proyecta así un espacio que alberga las zonas de ocio, conteniendo siempre la escala de la edificación que se presenta como una suerte de agregación de pequeñas piezas, que dibuja patios y acota las zonas, como lo hace la arquitectura tradicional mediterránea.
El interior respeta el sistema de seminiveles produciendo una gran heterogeneidad espacial con estancias con una gran diversidad de dimensiones y alturas. La estructura portante de la vivienda original se aloja en el interior del mobiliario que tiene la misma tonalidad gris que los troncos de alguna de las especies que habitan el jardín.
La casa se teje tanto entre los árboles como entre los buenos recuerdos que viven en esta pinada.
