Calixto House, Puebla de Don Fadrique

GRX Arquitectos 

Bordering with Albacete, Murcia, and Almeria bot located within Granada province, the municipality of Puebla de Don Fadrique belongs to the comarca of Huéscar, at the foot of La Sagra peak. The Granada-based GRX Arquitectos – Álvaro Gor, Carlos Gor, and Agustín Gor – designed this dwelling in a way that seeks to continue vernacular tradition through a contemporary construction.

The design presents a structure of concrete and a masonry cladding using stone from a local quarry, left over from the production of large slabs.

In a simple program, the house opens out to the garden and landscape, regulating the entrance of direct sunlight in summer. A perimetral wall resembling local ones creates grade differences that give views from inside while preserving privacy.
