To help this house blend into their setting, the studio chose to use local material, including soil, clay, and cement. It creates a feeling of warmth and consistency throughout the whole spaces, complemented by natural stone flooring.
The soil – taken and reused from the excavations to bury the foundations – is the main material, therefore, architecture emerges from the place.
The monolithic volumes of the house are predominantly solid and closed to the outside, transparent and open to the courtyard and consist of two parts, one for winter and other for summer. The door opens into the courtyard area, with a volume to one side containing the kitchen and bedrooms above. Other
spaces on the ground floor include the living and dining areas, which open onto views of the courtyard.
