The staff at Nan Arquitectos got a problem to design an power-environment friendly retreat on a price range in Pazo de Rubianes, Pontevedra, Spain. The forty nine sq.-meter House in Rubianes consists of a concrete block pierced by glass: “In the center of an space, the place the remainder of constructions are very totally different when it comes to form, a parallelepiped confirmed up from the bottom degree of the land so as to set up a fluent relation between inside and out of doors.” The vacation retreat is open to the South and its facade is given a discrete entry.
The general development course of took two months to finish. One of the primary objectives was to realize area continuity from the within out and rework the outside into an intimate area for the occupant by way of the massive window that’s overlaying one of many facades utterly. The different facade, probably the most uncovered to the neighborhood, is closed for complete privateness. Except for the toilet, positioned in a “service space” close to the wardrobe and kitchen, all interiors talk with one another. According to the architects, simplicity, austerity, effectivity and architectural high quality stood on the foundation of this house design in Spain. Photography: Santos-Diez
