Horma | 西班牙AM红砖住宅
The original house was composed of two bodies, the house in contact with the main facade and a barn that occupied the bottom of the plot. Between them, other elements have appeared over time and have filled a necessary space to breathe.
For this, a patio will become the main element, able to illuminate, articulate spaces and also give the house the necessary character, establishing a dialogue between the past, the present, and the future. The ground floor includes the public use of the house, developed throughout the size of the plot, 5 meters wide by 22 meters long.
Facade, far from altering the existing rhythms, intervenes in the depth of the ground floor window, replacing the original one with a terrace inhabited with vegetation that improves the privacy of the house while allowing ventilation of the entire public area. Materially, the house is designed with neutral tones that emphasize the natural light and the geometry of the original elements, leaving the singularity for the patio, built entirely with vertical brickwork that runs throughout its surface and inhabited by abundant vegetation giving both together life and color to the whole. Therefore, brick, vegetation and natural light, primary materials.
