The Rupià House by Mesura in collaboration with Los Objetos Decorativos

MESURA as Architects

Though in everyday life we tend to think we passively occupy our spaces, architecture is the optical instrument that can help us be aware of it. As filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein’s 1938 essay Montage and Architecture first suggested, architecture guides us through space, much like the montage of a film does when cropping, framing and abstracting. If architecture is capable of shaping a more meaningful experience of space, we wanted to not only let the surroundings define the design of a new house in Rupia, but to guide the user’s gaze towards it, and the Mediterranean way of living.


The Rupia House is a polyvalent home that proves architecture can bring about a more active experience of the context which surrounds us every day (our habits, culture and natural surroundings) by creating a system that blends in the landscape but makes it feel present at the same time.
