From the architect: Three independent cubes joined by a large slender sheet, whose rotated central cube generates an intermediate world between exterior and interior, between exposure and privacy between panoramic view and a private garden.
The "Guest House" consists of three independent glazed volumes and a technical volume, joined by a large ventilated roof. The separation of the volumes responds to the commission to design a house to receive guests. Guests who could spend only the afternoon or could stay for one or more nights occupying only part or all of the house.
The volumes at the ends correspond to the bedrooms, which open onto the landscape and close with an opaque wall towards the center, building with this the necessary privacy of the bedrooms and the containment of the public area.
In this way the central volume that contains inside the living - dining room and kitchen, is rotated in order to generate the intermediate and open spaces that allow the existence of outdoor areas protected from the wind and that in turn generates the merge of the landscape with the house.
The large ventilated roof that is supported on the volumes by a system of beams, gives unity to the house and generates the ideal intermediate spaces for leisure and contemplation of the landscape.
The cost was a limitation that was part of the order, so materials and modulations of the same had to always be standard solutions, optimized so that the house had to be "armed" instead of built with special solutions, to stay inside the budget that would make possible its execution.
