Mediterranean way of living
BoucaHouses | Mediterranean way of living
The plot is located in a rural area on a natural hill above the sea. The residences are defined by three rigid shells that open to the sea and the view, while protecting the private habitat from the terrace’s noises and public character. Respecting to the agricultural character of the land and the struggle of the people who cultivate it, the study remains at a low building level, avoiding large structures and intense outbreaks is developed around the open space, highlighting the importance of in-between spaces to the Mediterranean life, as well as to the structure of building settlement.
The use of materials that are native to the site is preferred. The study attempts to remain faithful to the spirit of the minimal and the absolutely necessary, a spirit that has been shaping this countryside for centuries.
