This weekend house, endowed with magnificent views, is located in the rural area of Sandiche, Asturias, near the River Nalón.
Volumetrically, it is a single storey house. Laterally set up, it is far enough from the street to allow parking beside it. The pedestrian path to the main entrance is made of stone paving slabs.
Three articulated pieces organize the space and its use. The day and night areas are connected by a central piece that is slightly dislocated and marks the main doorway. This piece becomes a hinge between the other two, which were rotated to find the optimum orientation.
This house has natural light, good sun exposure and contact with nature. The size of the openings allows them to have different uses. The openings/doors, which connect all the rooms (common and private) to the outside, subvert the logic that a window cannot be a pass-through element. On one side of the house, the one-sloped roof extends out over a space outside the house that becomes directly connected to the day area.
