The idea of a vernacular architecture and how it seeks to provide clear communication between the landscape and programmatic requirements is something that we always admire.
A very successful example of this dialogue are structures that support agriculture, such as functional barns or granaries, which punctuate the countryside more or less randomly, as blocks with an ephemeral appearance, floating over the ground.
It is precisely this idea of “gravitational lightness” that fascinates us and which the concept of this project is based on.
The proposal presents itself as a tripartition. Firstly, the base, appearing as a static and monolithic block. Secondly, the exploration of visual and physical relationships with the external open area. And finally, the apparent “levitation” of the geometrical block. The concept of tripartition is complemented by a choice of materials that seeks to exploit the apparent weakness of wood, in contrast to the black stone block of the base and the concrete block of the upper level.
