Horizon House_Jesús Aparicio


Casa-del-Horizonte-Jesus-Aparicio-Architecture-14
El proyecto se sitúa entre las cuidades de Salamanca y Madrid, en plena meseta castellana.  El lugar de asentamiento, toma un carácter sustancial en esta vivienda.La casa se sitúa en la parte más alta de una colina, que tiene una inclinación más suave en su cara norte. Sin embargo, en su ladera sur, la pendiente se hace más pronunciada, hacia un paisaje plano e infinito. La casa trata de apropiarse de ese horizonte lejano, para que éste forme parte del proyecto.

RH1614-22

Las características propias de este lugar, climatología, biología y topografía son el condicionante del proyecto. La casa se divide en una doble construcción: por un lado la tectónica y duradera; una edificación primitiva a la que pertenece la estructura. Los materiales de este área son el hormigón y la piedra. Por otro lado, esta la zona más efímera y estereotómica, construida en materiales como el azulejo, el vidrio o el acero.

El arquitecto lo divide en dos de los términos vitrubianos en Firmitas y Utilitas. La casa tiene  un desarrollo longitudinal, en donde el basamento queda habitado por las estancias típicas de una casa, dejando su fachada sur, completamente abierta, de tal forma que enmarque el territorio para hacerlo propio. Claro ejemplo de cómo el lugar, puede dar las claves necesarias de cómo introducir el proyecto en el paisaje, y disfrutarlo.

This Project is located between the cities of Madrid and Salamanca in the huge plateau of Castilla. The site has a vital importance in this house, which is in the highest part of a hill and has a subtle inclination in the northern face while it is more steep in the southern face and looks to a infinite plain landscape. The Project tries to take advantage of the far horizon and take it inside the Project.

The features of the site: climate, biology and topography, are the main influences of the Project. The construction employed in the house is double-type. The base has a tectonic and long-term quality with materials such as concrete and masonry and uses traditional construction methods. The other part of the house is ephemeral and stereotomic, constructed out of tiles, glass and Steel.

The architect divides the concept in two Vitrubian terms: Firmitas and Utilitas. The house is developed in a longitudinal way. The base contains the typical house spaces and in it, the southern facade is totally transparent to frame the landscape and make it its own. This is clearly an example of how the site and landscape can be determinant and give the neccessary criteria to insert the Project in the landscape and be able to enjoy it.
