Projects Wanted - Private House in Menorca, by Dom Arquitectura

"Private House in Menorca" is a housing project sent by Dom Arquitectura (from the architect Pablo Serrano Elorduy), a Spanish Architecture office located in Barcelona. With an area of 443 sqm this project was developed and built between the years of 2007 and 2009.

We are open to receive projects from all around the world, regardless of their dimension or typology. Please send us high quality photos (indicating their authors), drawings and descriptive texts in English to our Marketing e-mail - It will be our pleasure to help spreading new Architecture concepts and ideas.

"Being a summer house, the main idea is not only creating the interior spacesof the house, but distribute all outer space. The interior spaces seek goodrelations with the outside world, colonizing their surroundings and theirviews.

Inspired by the typical Menorca "tanca", stone walls divisions of the realm. The plot is organized from a space frame, fully passable, based on a traceorthogonal, combining floors, platforms, water, trees, plants, tanca,pergolas, walls and the house itself. By combining these elements we areencountering this approach in which each piece is delimited and acquires itsown identity and use within a harmonious whole. The diversity of outdoorstays provides the site a space balanced richness.

The house is situated in the center of the outer solar stays divided in two,front and rear. The hall of the house with two large openings on each sideoperates as a mixed external-internal transition. Falls outside the pavementcausing a passage that connects the back yard with the front porch.

Based on typical lattices "menorquinas" designed a sliding wooden slats fixedset a filter to the outside, they act as sunscreens, giving privacy andmultiplying the usability. They combine the vertical slats of the eastand west facades with horizontal south facade. Most of these openings arefloor to ceiling, allowing for greater continuity to the outside and makingthe most magnificent views of the site."
