“Working in philosophy – like work in architecture in many respects – is really more a working on oneself. One’s own interpretation. On one’s way of seeing things”. Ludwig Wittgenstein

Llosa Cortegana Arquitectos | La Caleta HouseThis project is a tribute. Besides a reflection on how we see ourselves as architects, thinking in ourselves the house shows itself in its spatial nudity, including the austerity of its materials and the pulse of its inhabitation. The house withdraws into itself and over the reception area. The patio implants itself on the cliff, discovering the view to the woods, from where the space flows and develops down the stairs.

This social space works both as an interior and exterior space that develops frontally and containing the experience of sharing in family. The project´s strategy consists in the insertion of different scales of voids that accompany the daily life. Trying in a way to hide from the inclemency of the desert, generating spaces of shadow, but always accompanied by spaces of light.

In the domestic, daily and pleasurable space, in this space that allows us to see and feel the family life. The understanding of matter is defined in the space, the austerity and the textures that accompany the house, without disturbing the continuity of its surfaces. The experience of the house grows gradually, from scene to scene, because it resists assuming a simple and authoritarian concept.
