HABITAT STOREHOUSE

-

Duesaigües

The habitat-storehouse is located in a rural area dedicated to livestock and agriculture. The topography of the site defines the house’s position and its basic geometry. The inclined roof follows the slope of the ground looking to integrate the house into the surrounding site. The construction faces a pine forest to the north and the existing terraces with olive, almond, fig and apricot trees to the south. The nearby rabbit farm defines the habitat’s architectural language. The program consists of a multipurpose space: living/kitchen/bedroom/storeroom, a bathroom and a small bedroom. In the exterior there is a small outdoor storage space (west) and a paved area facing the landscape views.
