Contemporary composition, traditional form.
A paradise, more than a site. Two distinct areas: a promontory on which stands the original house, which is to be demolished, and a lower area that complements the house with other uses: swimming pool, large garden, sports courts, which will also be the subject of action, demolition and restructuring.
The strategy is well defined from the beginning: following the current confection, replacing the old house, on the promontory, the new one will be located, extending the limits of the previous one and offering itself to the landscape in search of better views and a better use. This will logically make the perception of the new house from the lower area much more impressive, while it wants to bring lightness to counteract this impression, which is achieved by removing some volumes in flight, including among them a pool directly linked to the house.
For the rest of the plot two auxiliary buildings are distributed, one for the second pool area, as a pavilion, and another for uses compatible with the sports court it serves.
Both the main house and the auxiliary buildings respond to a simple composition, with simple, clear volumes. The house tries to combine the two directions of the boundaries of the plot, which also causes it to open towards the landscape, but it does so with a clear volumetric decomposition, in a traditional way, with an axis of articulation marked as absence and not as presence, a fact that is also reinforced by the materiality used.
