Is proposed solve a living a space to live and work in a corner opposite the church building. The vernacular architecture of the environment has solid masonry walls of gray granite and tile roofs without eaves, the roofs perch on the walls at a distance, as untouched. These gaps were the beginning to manage the distances and connections between functions. A space to work as a solid foundation built with poured concrete, tinted and textured and over this a domestic space, separate but supported, distant and slipped. The domestic space is covered with light limestone topography. It is managed from the boundary into the street at a right angle and an inner emptiness faceted, facing north, as an extension of the workspace. The heavy matter descends and the light one ascends, building a new reference that dignifies the square. The domestic and work matter are grouped, stacked and connected. It investigates how to reuse materials from previous building works that have been unexecuted waiting for better times, with this materials the formwork that shapes the new reinforced concrete are generated. Their turn has come .... The field work is related to granitic vernacular sockets and becomes technical molding the on site concrete with a formwork that reuses onduline roofing sheets where in addition to their shapes, their origin, texture and even color, is marked in the concrete. [ES] Se plantea resolver un espacio para vivir y trabajar en una esquina frente al edificio de la iglesia. La arquitectura vernácula del entorno tiene sólidos muros de mampostería de granito gris y cubiertas de teja sin aleros, que se posan en los muros como a distancia, como sin tocar. Estas separaciones fueron el inicio para gestionar las distancias y las conexiones entre las funciones. Un espacio para trabajar como base sólida construido con hormigón in situ, tintado y texturizado y sobre esto un espacio doméstico, separado pero apoyado, distante y deslizado. El espacio domestico se cubre con una topografía ligera de caliza. Se gestiona desde el límite hacia la calle en ángulo recto y un vacío interior facetado, orientado al norte, como extensión del espacio de trabajo. La materia pesada desciende y la ligera asciende, construyendo una nueva referencia que dignifica la plaza. La materia doméstica y la materia del trabajo se agrupan, se apilan y se conectan. Se investiga sobre como reutilizar materiales procedentes de obras anteriores que han quedado sin ejecutar esperando mejores épocas, con ellos se generan los encofrados que moldean el nuevo hormigón armado. Su turno ha llegado…. La materia del trabajo, se relaciona con los zócalos graníticos vernaculares y se tecnifica moldeando el hormigón in situ con un encofrado que reutiliza planchas de onduline para cubiertas donde además de sus formas, su procedencia, su textura e incluso su color, queda marcado en el hormigón.
