The house is located in the Vega de Granada, the 750 m2 plot belongs to an urban plan that allows the construction of two-story single-family homes with the idea of leaving free space for a garden and pool.
However, the house had to be fully accessible and therefore developed on a single floor. This condition implied doubling the occupancy on the ground floor, which left very little free exterior space between the home and boundaries.
Given this situation, we asked ourselves if it was possible to design a fully accessible, one-story home, with half occupancy – maintaining the scheme of the neighboring homes.
This is the starting point of the project, which results in a house composed of “two halves” of similar proportions and different nature. One at night, massive and private, located in the most protected part of the plot. Another during the day, completely open to the outside space. Both come together to create a U-shaped house open to the south, where the exterior half is introduced into the interior, while the interior is projected onto the exterior by means of a 5.35m parallelepiped glass by 9.30m covered by a large lightened reinforced concrete cantilever measuring 9.00 x 16.00 m.
