Solo House

Words

Pezo von Ellrichshausen Architects designed this hollowed monolithic concrete form rising above the landscape providing panoramic views of the Matarranya region of Spain. A substantial base is hidden amongst the surrounding trees, allowing the inhabitable element to float above the canopy.

The volume is rotated such that the corners point in cardinal directions. The circulation consists of a focal courtyard containing a pool, which extends choreographed views through punched fenestration.
