Description Change this

Old house’s ruins on strategic high grounds is a space for renovation. The essential in the house would go through this visual relationship with the far-off landmarks. The house would be the space between the ruin’s walls – which would become a patio – and new walls would raise around it in a rectangle attached to the rough terrain. Highlighting its strategic quasi-military character, only the corners open up in variable relationships to the surrounding landscape. Walls rising from the ground hiding a white and bright interior.
