We like the virtue of architecture which makes possible constructing a house on air, walking on water…

An abrupt plot of land overlooking the sea, where what is best is to do nothing. It invites to stay.

A piece that respects the land’s natural contour is set in it.

AA HOUSE in Almería, Spain by MVN Arquitectos

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Article source: MVN Arquitectos

Up in the light, abandoned the heart, is delivered. Collected. Finally lulled and without penalty. Hosts In the light where no one suffers violence, because it has gotten there, in that light, without and even force any door without opening it, without going through lintels of light and shadow, without effort and without protection. “ María Zambrano, Notes of a method.

The AA Home project arose from the need to build a site able to create a meaningful place. “So the house does not destroy this sense of peace that I had the first time I looked at the horizon from this hill, and to protect it” they asked us.

Gamesa is a multinational company engaged in the manufacture and maintenance of wind turbines for green energy production.

This was a project to restore an old sixteenth-century palatial mansion, which was in ruins and had undergone major renovations and alterations over time, particularly during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Through an extensive cleaning and restoration process, the building´s original appearance and size resurfaced, exposing the old wood-paneled ceilings that were hidden behind false ones throughout all of the rooms.
