2005 Guerrero House, Cádiz

To build a well-balanced house full of light and shade.

We built very tall, 8 meter high, walls around a 33 x 18 meter rectangle and covered the central strip, 9 x 18 meters. We raised the ceiling of the 9 x 9 central square to the same height as the 8 meter high outside walls. To fill this central space with shade, we opened it to the front and back, creating 3 meter deep porches that protect these openings from the sun, tempering the light. To either side, bedrooms and baths.
