Textual content description offered by the architects. Tejeda is a small municipality situated inside a volcanic space, on the summit of the island of Gran Canaria. It’s a particular place, with a really steep terrain and a mesmerizing pure surroundings, “a petrified storm”, as Unamuno outlined it. Small-scale buildings coexist within the sparsely constructed cloth, which is scattered all through the territory as nuclei, amongst which some fascinating constructions of a extra conventional character stand out. The rules, with greater than good intentions, strive to make sure the preservation of the agricultural character of the municipality by making use of very strict parameters, which promote the looks of folks options as an alternative of the enhancement of the unique parts of in style Canarian structure.
With this beginning situation arises the potential for projecting a indifferent home on a plot of very distinctive traits. Positioned within the historic heart of the village, the plot has minimal dimensions, 9×4 meters, and a longitudinal slope of two.50 meters. In a nook scenario between the regional highway and a pedestrian passage, the land borders on its west and south facades with a free area. This, along with its elevated place within the territory, makes it one of many foremost impulses of the venture.
The intervention bets on a leisurely insertion of the architectural piece, which is offered as a easy quantity that assumes the imposed archetypal formalization, however that in flip takes refuge within the voids of the norm to suggest an structure that doesn’t surrender the intrinsic values of the venture, delicate to the stimuli of the place.
The home occupies your complete plot and is distributed in top. Conscious of its privileged place, the work is conceived as a watchtower that’s airtight in its facades to the road and permeable in the direction of the views of the surroundings, on which stand out the 2 foremost geological symbols of the island: the Roque Bentayga and the Roque Nublo. On this sense, a set of holes of equal proportion (the one which obliges the norm) however completely different scale is distributed by the west and south facades, framing and trimming the panorama, favoring that every area is said in a selected approach to the outside. The play of shifting gaps is accomplished with the therapy of the envelope in a sequence of bands that introduce a horizontal counterpoint to the verticality of the half. These stripes, executed with hand-grooved plastering, outline the bottom of the constructing and distinction with the mastered end of the end.
Internally the makes use of are hierarchized in part, assigning the semi-basement flooring to the non-public rooms and the intermediate one, the place the principle entry is situated, to kitchen and eating room, that are prolonged to the surface by way of a small terrace. On the second flooring, probably the most dominant over the views, the lounge is situated. The latter slab hangs from the roof, permitting the insertion of a longitudinal fissure that visually connects the three ranges of the home and thru which the staircase runs, which manifests arduous and heavy in its begin, gentle and pleasant at its coronation.
Within the materials airplane, a bounded catalogue is used, through which the textures assemble with gentle a serene however vibrant inside. The pavements are executed with concrete, establishing a duality with the ceiling airplane, formalized by uncovered concrete slabs formwork with pine planks. This materials can be used for the staircase all the way down to the bedrooms, highlighting the independence of the non-public areas.
The large use of pine wooden for furnishings and panelling is mixed with the weather in inexperienced as the one observe of coloration, offering hotter nuances within the formalization of the home area, serving to to construct an surroundings through which textures construct with gentle a serene however vibrant inside, and finishing the set of methods of this small home that appears, brazenly and with out complexes, to the petrified storm that surrounds it.
En el plano materials, se recurre a un catálogo acotado, en el que las texturas construyan con la luz un inside sereno pero vibrante. Los pavimentos se ejecutan con hormigón fratasado, estableciendo una dualidad con el plano de techo, formalizado mediante losas de hormigón visto encofrado con tablones de pino. Este mismo materials se emplea para la escalera de bajada a los dormitorios, remarcando la independencia de las áreas privadas.
El uso masivo de la madera de pino para mobiliario y panelados se combina con los elementos en verde como única nota de coloration, aportando matices más cálidos en la formalización del espacio doméstico, ayudando a construir un ambiente en el que las texturas construyan con la luz un inside sereno pero vibrante, y completando el conjunto de estrategias de esta pequeña vivienda que mira, abiertamente y sin complejos, a la tempestad petrificada que la rodea.
