a tiled façade and green fence reflect the surroundings of this private residence on the outskirts of a small spanish village. designed by laura ortín arquitectura, the ‘wonder house’ takes its cues from the ceramic coatings of traditional houses in the area, while the fence mimics the outlines of the nearby hill.

aware that high-rise buildings will soon arrive in the area, laura ortín arquitectura aimed to maintain a memory of the current environment with the design of the residence. designed as a unit in which shared spaces are L-shaped, the house enabling the connection between both sides of the plot and providing for views and cross ventilation.

as the weather of the area is usually warm, the architects aimed for the house to be a personal shelter, a private landscape the will provide its owners with rest, delight and joy. patios with different orientations take up the free spaces of the plot and may be used according to the season of the year.
