HOUSE IN AIOS
Aios, Sanxenxo (2005-08)
The construction seeks balance in itself, it is geometrically rigorous, responding to the protection that the place demands from the beginning.
The regular concrete structure forms the box inside which the house is placed and is shown both inside and outside. The exterior voids are filled with stone and form the enclosure. Inside, brick and plaster painted white.
These materials give the house a hard and resistant appearance that contrasts with the large glass panes that allow a view towards the estuary.
The result is a compact, defensive building towards its neighbours but open towards the sea.
