House S

Caceres + Tous as Architects

A deep and narrow land with moderate slope and front views to a rice field patch. The layout uses the slope to distribute the program in two buildings. The top building contains three main bedrooms and service area; the lower building distributes around a central courtyard the kitchen, dining room, two lounges, bar area, and two guest bedrooms and an underground cinema in the basement.

 

The two buildings are connected by a steel bridge covered with a sliding wooden screen that allows the wind and blocks the sun and the rain.

 

The layout in the land allows to create different areas, a central garden, a patio with an ancient tree and a rooftop terrace to enjoy the views. The swimming pool uses the full wide of the house.

1. Façade - Textured Concrete Exposed
2. Flooring - Polish Concrete with brass joints

4. Windows - Aluminium and double glass
