The project is resolved as a single storey household covered by a three-gable roof that covers the enclosed part and the open exterior spaces including a garage. This seminal decision allowed to reduce the scale of the set by adjusting the height of the facades.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazThe garage is located by the access limits of the plot, some 50 cm above the ground level of the household and adapts to the original topography, thus reducing the needs for ground preparation and conditioning for vehicle access whilst contributing to the privacy of the more domestic areas.Save this picture!Ground FloorThe room program is organized around a main living-dining room that can be enlarged by opening completely towards a southeast porch, where the kitchen also opens. Variations in height and the way the relationship between inner spaces is resolved contribute equally to a greater feeling of spaciousness. The outlines featured in the storey plan respond to purpose of finding the best aspect for each room together with views above the valley and the nearby woodland.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazThe result is a single volume, low, stout and anchored to the ground. From the point of view of the composition, it recalls resources that are usual in traditional buildings (heavy closings with a rugged texture contrasting with the use of wood in panels and carpentry work). From an structural point of view the project is resolved with a simple system of bearing walls and a covering woodwork.Save this picture!SectionsReferences to traditional architecture are far from literal as they are rather expressed in solutions meaning a respectful attitude towards both the environment and to former presences in the area.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazProject gallerySee allShow lessMecanoo Unveils Design for Experimental Garden and Palace Restoration in The Netherl…Architecture NewsDaniel Valle Architects Unveils Winning Kindergarten Design for SeoulArchitecture News Share Three-Gable Roof House / Arrokabe ArquitectosSave this projectSaveThree-Gable Roof House / Arrokabe Arquitectos Architects: ARROKABE Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project Photographs: Luis Diaz Diaz Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/802952/casa-a-tres-aguas-arrokabe-arquitectos Clipboard Photographs CopyAbout this officeARROKABE ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesA CoruñaSpainPublished on January 10, 2017Cite: “Three-Gable Roof House / Arrokabe Arquitectos” 10 Jan 2017.
