This project has the illusion of a first project. The client transmits his concern for the environment. The building must be in accord with its surrounding, which is our belief as well. But… how can we create an office on top of a mountain? The answer lies in the traditional architecture, the granary/hórreo. A modular rectangular prism to the desired size, that does not touch the ground or get wet and is also, weather resistant. Outside, concrete and boards are rhythmically placed, and interrupted only at the access opening, an opportunity to admire the canyons of the Sil river valley. Our work frames the landscape.
