A House in Pamplona, Spain by Vaillo & Irigaray + Beguiristain

The renovation of this home suggests a consideration on the consequences to be derived from the implementation of a new -almost palatial- scale.
A strategy has been planned: to shape a sole plan by means of large board pavement – 15m length x 30cm width.
This concept is emphasized by the employment of a theatrical iconography: curtains covering the whole space, disfiguring backgrounds, blurring space continuity and generating some thrilling chambers.
The project involves a space experimentation based on straggling wet rooms and crystallizing them as a pierced canvas in wenge timber, as a true “thick wall”.
Furrows and haunting sparkles of hidden piercing in this last stratum conceal timber solidity and dilute it into a suggesting velvet luster, light translucent glass reflections and fogged lace transparencies wrapping and blurring the house.
