House SRR by Silvestre Navarro Arquitectos

By • Nov 11, 2011

Valencia-based studio Silvestre Navarro Arquitectos has completed the SRR house project.

Designed for a carpenter, this contemporary home that seems to be floating above the landscape is located in Valencia, the third largest city in Spain.

House SRR by Silvestre Navarro Arquitectos (original statement in Spanish, English translation with Google translate):

“El cliente es un carpintero, alguien que viene hacia nosotros con confianza personal. Alguien que no busca una arquitectura que ha sido vista o vivida anteriormente, un lugar donde el siente la felicidad del visitante (Alvaro Siza “Living the House”). Un cliente para el cual la casa es solo un suelo y cubierta. Esta abstaracción es lo que motiva al proyecto.

Obviamente, el proceso de gestación de la casa son mas complejos, en realidad fue mas una serie de ensayo y error, a través de dibujos de exploración general, modelos simples y conversaciones complejas.

En este proyecto, todas las ideas se materializan en un plano de hormigón. Un elemento que quiere ser todos al mismo tiempo. Un plano, un material que es plegado en si mismo para formar un espacio que es piso y techo, para ser una casa.

The customer is a carpenter, somebody who came to us with personal confidence. Someone who does not seek an architecture that has been seen or has been lived before and where he felt the happiness of the visitor (Alvaro Siza “Living a House”). A customer for whom the house is only a floor and a ceiling. This abstraction is what motivates our project.

Obviously, the processes of gestation are more complex, really are a series of trial and error, generally through exploratory drawings, simple models and complex conversations.

In this project, all these ideas are materialized in a plane of concrete. One element that wants to be all. A plane, a material that is folded upon itself to form a space, to be both a floor and a ceiling, to be a house.”
