Home in Puntiró / RipollTizon
Textual content description offered by the architects. The land the place the home is located has a steep slope ascending from the road, providing breathtaking views of the Bay of Palma. The governing laws for the plot play a decisive function: buildings are required to consist primarily of a most important physique with an basically rectangular plan, a easy volumetric design, and a sloping roof completed with conventional ceramic tiles.
Positioned on the higher a part of the plot, adjoining to a wooded space and steering away from the steep slope close to the highway, the dwelling is conceived as a staggered dwelling. It adapts to the topography, unfolding throughout varied ranges that align with the pure profile of the land, establishing a powerful reference to the outside.
Given the frequent and extended visitor visits, the constructing is designed to comfortably accommodate two households. The home includes two unbiased personal areas, every of which features a master suite, an adjoining multipurpose room, and a rest room, along with the usual shared areas.
The ground plan of the constructing is nearly sq.. The areas for personal use, for hosts and visitors, are similar in format and measurement and are organized on adjoining sides of the ground plan offering the independence every household wants. These areas are separated by shared areas, organized alongside a diagonal axis oriented in direction of the views. This axis crosses the ground plan and ends in the lounge.
Three courtyards function transition areas between the inside and exterior. One of many courtyards is roofed with a light-weight construction supporting climbing vegetation, making a shaded, protected dwelling area built-in with the constructing’s envelope. Every master suite gives direct entry from one of many courtyards, creating various itineraries that reinforce the supposed independence of the personal areas.
Conventional building options are used. The construction is resolved with load-bearing partitions and one-way slabs whereas concurrently creating the dwelling areas: load-bearing construction and dwelling construction coincide. The outside neutrality of the amount contrasts with the dynamic inside of the dwelling. The varied flooring ranges that form the interior topography are accompanied by the staggered association within the ceilings and culminate in a sloping roof with Arabic tiles resolved with a single slope parallel to the land. This creates a ventilated and accessible air chamber by means of which the installations run. Concerning finishes, the load-bearing partitions are rendered with lime mortar, whereas beams and slabs are left uncovered, giving character to the inside area.
The constructing’s power efficiency is superb; that is achieved by utilizing pure, and native sources in addition to environment friendly installations. Because of its optimum orientation, the constructing advantages from prevailing winds, and pure air flow is maximized. Courtyards are used as landscaped intermediate areas. Rainwater is harvested. The roof is ventilated, and the construction, resolved with ceramic load-bearing partitions, supplies the constructing with excessive thermal inertia.
