Modular house in palm wood with sea view. Integration between architecture and landscape - TimberOnWeb
The main objective of the project, the work of BAAQ' architectural studio, was to generate the least impact of the architecture on the ground, creating four distinct volumes and transferring most of the daily activities to the outdoors
Casa Naila stands on a privileged spot, with two façades against evil. At the beginning of the project two compositional axes were identified, creating a cross-shaped patio that would create 4 volumes and allow adequate integration between the architecture and the surrounding environment.
Each volume consists of different heights and sloping roofs, alluding to the rocky topography in which it stands. The spaces have different orientations to favour air circulation and optimal lighting, guaranteeing a sea view for each user.
The core of the project is the living areas, connected with the private areas through a central patio. The ground floor consists of reinforced concrete volumes, the upper floors are covered with palm wood, the predominant material of the area, used in the traditional construction system in vernacular houses.
