From the architect: The idea of fragmenting the volume is about breaking the scale of the house. Consequently a mesh of courtyards generates a large and luminous interior that stretches in a modular pattern of shade and light.
A series of wooden deck pathways curl along the sand garden connecting the two sides of the house. The house assumes a more urban relationship with the road using a rhythmic set of enclosed volumes. On the opposite side the interior space opens widely towards the landscape.
The building fits with the historical and cultural references of the region when reinterpreting the traditional hut in terms of its form, scale, constructive method and materiality. A casa resulta da multiplicação de um módulo arquétipo de cabana que expande o seu perímetro desde a rua até aos limites do arrozal.
