The project starts from a key issue: the topological deformation of vernacular construction. Its development involves a mutation of the traditional Mediterranean architectural archetype, where the central point revolves around the patio.
The house was designed in order to learn how to deal with the eastern wind Levante. It provides an envelope with Southwest exposure, where its porosity diminishes in the Northwest.
The roof is modelled according to the wind flow, protecting the living patio.
