Santos Cruz House


A concept of "home RV", a box, a body, a volume based on a narrow lot. Private area and social area, now closed upon himself, now open on the garden. A wall that organizes the interior space. The panels that open pair peek at the world and the setting sun, a man of late. Wood and aluminum as contrast materials. A balcony on to the closest view of the sea encloses a twilight time the last drops that winter left organized a stained wooden facade.
Here the exercise was simple. Implement a housing program in a batch controlled and defined in alignments and arch centerings. A simple structure hides a logical organization of space on two marble plans. Wide spaces defined only by glass panels that allow reading of the global space.
