divided into two differentiated volumes, the house ‘mirando ás bateas’ by spanish architect iñaki leite rests against a rock face overlooking the arosa estuary. the dwelling is located in a pobra do caramiñal, spain and features recycled wooden materials made from local shipping ‘bateas’, commonly used in the mussel production industry. the sustainable construction has a rough, stressed texture on its outer façade, while the interior reveals a smoother cut of the wood, providing a sense of comfort and warmth. the spaces are divided into two interconnecting volumes – the more private one can be shut off from the outside world through collapsible wooden shutters, and the other, which contains the public areas has expansive south-facing glazing with views out to the sea. there is a dynamic interaction between the two geometric structures that is enhanced by glimpses through to their various light-filled interiors. the design incorporates complex ventilation, insulation, south orientated glass surfaces and solar protection components – energy efficient solutions that help it to respect the beautiful, natural surroundings.
