Housing

— Silvalde House

There were several approaches to an idea of home.

Thinking the house for a condition, a context, a value or dimension is an exercise that architecture should perform. Nothing comes from nothing. The architecture is made on a land, a requirement, a taste. A reality made of several others, between distress and revelation, between pleasure and suffering. A doubt perpetuated by the matter. 

A project is always something that takes place, an amazing life experience and every house a hank that is built, overlapping lines, threads of a story you want to be true. Design is increasingly moving towards knowledge.

Here the scale, volume and the proportion of the architectural object are experienced in a subtle design, giving the house a permanent identity: calm, quiet and light, something to stay.

A game of contrasts, a duality to whoever wants to be – although far and overlooking – living the sea.
