Close to the Quinta del Berro Park, in a street bordered by leafy trees, we find this house built at the end of the 1920s.
The house, which was the residence of the sculptor Jorge de Oteiza in the 50s, was very damaged, and its facades had undergone numerous modifications. We began developing an investigation in the Archives of the city, which allowed us to discover the plans of the original project.
Based on this documentation, it is decided to recover the original image of the house: a white volume, with large windows to the outside and a Roman ceramic roof, surrounded by a garden that seems to climb the facade, by incorporating forged steel planters .
Inside the house we find a central staircase that tries to incorporate the garden into the interior.
This space is wrapped in a perforated mesh shaped like palm trees that acts as a large screen that casts different shadows depending on the light.
The result is something like walking along a large liana that relates the different spaces of the house through double heights.
