Dwelling in Uleta [ENG] [ENG] - This isolated single family home, located in a luxury estate, reflects architecture's failure to give solutions for a "comprehensible" interpretation of the location. The house, located on the borders of the estate, takes on the industrial landscape opposite. It uses a very efficient section type that allows the fulfilment of all of the client's initial requirements: privacy and light. A small industrial container is manipulated, modifying the section to fit in the rooms of the upper floor without altering the unitary interpretation of the space. Going through the threshold, the house's apparent hermetecism becomes a cascade of light. The interior is white and well-lit, the outside dark and hermetic, toned down by using wood. The final result speaks ironically of the achievements of a certain domestic architecture, further suggesting the ambiguity between the interior and exterior.
