Casa Calixto: A house for the New Rural Resident [Spain]
Casa Calixto by GRX Arquitectos connects with the surrounding landscape of Puebla de Don Fadrique. The project looks into the future of housing who is changing in the context of unstable climate and political situation. The house opens with a horizontal entrance overlooking the garden, creating an organic line between the privacy of the space and the exterior. The architects state: “The garden is not seen as the “no-house”, but as an intermediary with the landscape through a new topography.”
The structure of the house was made with concrete and stone masonry that allowed the architects to work with local construction companies. The raw feel of Casa’s interior contests the idea of excess, paving way for more economical approach to architecture design.
