House Haynes

    The lot originally had a six meter incline facing north, opposite the main access.  The main objectives were to work with the topography, orient the house towards the midday sun and preserve the magnificent surrounding cork trees.

    The house rises as a vessel of Mediterranean architecture where space, light, horizon and continuity are the prime forces.  On the upper floor there are a series of rooms (living, dining, bed) which are connected by sliding doors and open onto the garden by way of a large continuous glass panel.

    Access to the house is by a ramp which leads us to the lower level  where the auxiliary rooms are located overlooking the northern facade through spaces of varying proportions and geometries.
