On a site in Tepoztlán, with views of two large mountain ranges (one, the more spectacular, being very close, and the other being on the other side of the valley) we were commissioned to build a house in stone. It was to be a sharp geometry which would convert the material into its pure tectonics. Openings would be made at both ends to incorporate views as well as using the buildings height to create strips from which the mountain range could be viewed in its entirety. The roof was to respond to weather conditions. These four conditions of the project, the geometry of the stone, end windows, strips and roof, informed the design of the interior spaces strongly delimited by thick stone walls which open out into gardens and patios to incorporate them.

The project seeks to retain the existing façade as much as possible as well as enhancing the value of its inherent construction properties. The proposal intends to uphold the proposed conservation plan, respecting its commitment to preserving international standards, not just for the façade but for virtually the whole building. Thus the idea is to go beyond the constraints of maintaining the existing building, preserving its “essence” by ensuring that additional constructive elements seek harmony within the space and are passive, allowing the existing building to stand out.

El edificio es resultado de concurso restringido donde obtuvimos el primer premio. Se trata de una torre de vivienda de 10mil metros cuadrados con areas públicas tanto en planta baja como en cubierta.
El proyecto se organiza alrededor de un patio central con el propósito de dotar a todas las unidades de un doble frente. priorizando así la iluminación natural de todos los espacios y una correcta ventilación cruzada.
El edificio se construye a través de unos marcos de concreto que reglan la fachada y le dan rigidez e identidad al edificio. La estructura como expresión ultima de lo que el edificio es y quiere trasmitir. Continue reading Cadaval & Sola-Morales

Located right in front of the Mediterranean sea, in one of the most beautiful areas of the Spanish coast, the Sunflower House intends to relate directly to the astonishing landscape that surrounds it. The house also deals with the extreme weather conditions of its location: a very windy peninsula of “la Costa Brava” right near to the Cap de Creus National Park.
