AQSO Arquitectos Office share with us their latest developed task the Cuña House in Spain. Positioned on a narrow website in Lorquí, this personal residence subtly pierces the horizon with its distinctive sloped roof. The sharp elevation stands in contrast to the smooth curves of the surrounding vista, capturing views in the direction of the Segura River meadow.
From the Architects:
The residence is located in Lorquí, a modest town in Southern Spain surrounded by a landscape shaped by eroded hills acknowledged as ‘Montes Blancos’. The ascending shape of the house outlines a triangular elevation standing over the terrain, capturing views in direction of the Segura River´s meadow.
The neat domestic space is arranged close to a generous double height residing space in which reduced component kitchen and pantry are located. A mezzanine is inserted into the tallest component of the home in which the master bedroom is found. The staircase offering entry to the loft, produced of a folded exposed concreted slab, ends in an indoor balcony utilized as workplace room facing the residing area.
The decrease floor is connected on 1 side by way of a large opening to a garden although the mezzanine opens to a semi-covered terrace. Light colors, characteristic in classic architecture of sunny areas, are predominant inside and outdoors the property. The mortar facade, window frames and walls contrast with the grey hardwood flooring and a cream-colored travertine wall enclosing the entrance door.
The structural technique of the property is based mostly on concrete slabs and supports enclosed by honeycomb clay block walls. The roof is made of a waterproof thin concrete slab protected by a sandwich panel.
