Architecture: Casa CorManca with Vertical Garden

On a 12 meters by 13 meters (39ft by 42ft) plot of land, a monolithic volume is transformed in order to attain luminous indoor spaces.

Slade stone at the exterior facades is contrasted with the soft beech wood finish, achieving great definition and special discovery.

Built in a small plot of land 176 m2, (1894 SqFt), the construction rises looking south to the vertical vegetation garden wall.

It is a 3 stories high assembly where the main patio is to be found at the second level, follow by a small lecture studio.

This area is intent to transform radically the notion of “open garden patio” since there is not really space to ensure a ground courtyard.

Think about vegetation not only as a practical temperature-humidity comfort control device, or as a beautiful energetic view, but also as an element that acts like a light curtain, accomplishing the idea of a theatrical dramatic plane, where more space is to be found at the back.

What do you think of this project? Would you live in a place like this?
