Directory of Architecture Designs, Contemporary Houses, and Modern Buildings aMerica
All the conception process of the Valley House starts with the Valley without the house, or either, with the confrontation of the architect with natural space. I started defining intentions. The will to respect the local topography and to take the people, through the house, to cover and to usufruct 10.000m2 of available area had been the first ones to appear.
I wanted a proportionate volume in relation to the land. The idea of one lost object in the vast space did not please me, so I came up with a long and compact element embedded in the ground.
