CAEaCLAVELES in Asturias, Spain by Longo + Roldán Arquitectos

The peculiar topography of the site, its orientation and mountain views of Cuera are the starting points in the design of an artist´s residence/studio + countryside bed&breakfast in the Asturian population La Pereda, in the village of Llanes, Spain. The project takes advantage of a loophole in the law -which requires regional build-pitched roofs of curved ceramic tile- to propose a building that looks forward the integration into the natural beauty of the area more than in the built environment that surrounds it. To reach a level that will optimize the views of the mountains and the forest surrounding the plot, the action takes place in the northern part of the site. The existing hill there is removed to play with a single green roof that shelters the different uses, thereby diluting the boundaries between the natural and the built in a game between the tectonic and estereotomic that refers to the land-art interventions. A curved stone wall leads from the main road and back into the building and gains altitude to become the load bearing wall that supports the concrete deck, while separates the residence/studio area, for the artist private use, from the small b&b open to the public. This central wall, massive and forceful to ensure the privacy of both functions, contrast to the facades oriented to the north and south in the housing area and to the east in the b&b, much lighter and visually permeable, to enhance the views. The cover in continuity with the ground not only integrates the building into the environment and minimizes the height above the ground naturally, but also alows to maximize energy savings.
