Designed by A-cero, Dwelling, Rustic architectural is located in Avila, Spain. A-cero’s new project in Avila is a dwelling of generous proportions developed over a single storey to facilitate the indoor-outdoor connection and make the most of the environment in which it stands. Surrounded by meadows, tree groves, chestnut, pine and oak trees and wildlife inhabited by stags, wild boar and roe deer, the house establishes a recognised link with the traditional architecture and vernacular customs.
Through an apt play of symmetries visual perspectives are created. A painstaking study of the light allows it to come in through courtyards, grooves, windows, skylights and façade openings. The courtyards helped the practice to minimise the conditions of the extreme climate, provide colour, freshness and hold the ponds that reflect the ‘serenity and musicality’ of the water.
