SILEX | Vallecas Flints 
The sílex is an extremely hard mineral though very fragile that tends to the break in fragments that looks like edges. Vallecas always was very rich in sílex (flints) and in plasters that were extracted from his quarries.

Following this tradition, the project wants to evoke the edges, the colors, the textures, the shades of the big blocks of hewn stone piled up and displaced, working the building and propitiating a rhythmic front. The edges typical of the flint and the texture and color of the plasters evoked in the front provoke a few games of lights and shades in the facade.

The threshold raised as door to the later garden, emphasizes his lateral edges in the south-east front marking the tour of entry and inviting to the access.
