House A by Vaillo + Irigaray and Beguiristain

By • Apr 26, 2012

Pamplona-based studios Vaillo + Irigaray and Beguiristain have teamed together to remodel a 3,110 square foot apartment in Pamplona, the historical capital city of Navarre in Spain.

House A by Vaillo + Irigaray and Beguiristain:

“The renovation of this home suggests a consideration on the consequences to be derived from the implementation of a new -almost palatial- scale.

A strategy has been planned: to shape a sole plan by means of large board pavement – 15m length x 30cm width.

This concept is emphasized by the employment of a theatrical iconography: curtains covering the whole space, disfiguring backgrounds, blurring space continuity and generating some thrilling chambers.

The project involves a space experimentation based on straggling wet rooms and crystallizing them as a pierced canvas in wenge timber, as a true “thick wall”.

Furrows and haunting sparkles of hidden piercing in this last stratum conceal timber solidity and dilute it into a suggesting velvet luster, light translucent glass reflections and fogged lace transparencies wrapping and blurring the house.”
