Watching House

Pedro Ressano Garcia as Architects

The Watching house holds a multiple stripe lines on the elevations that ensure a powerful and expressive character. This is enriched with the combination of two contrasting materials, the white clean facade and the warm rough texture, made with local stones.


The aim was to ensure a peaceful atmosphere. The prominent wall follows a path that merges the interior of the house with the exterior. The little and secretive windows in the facade, offer a diffuse and constant natural light throughout the whole year. The light inside creates a mystic environment while the intimacy of the interior spaces is protected from the outside world.
