Red House. Over existing red stone walls, a light wooden structure builds a space completely open to the garden. Nagoya house compiles all of our experiences in Japan, from spatial configuration of the space to japanese joinery, everything is almost related to our learning after several trips, experiences and research during these last 5 years. But we cannot forget about the context and where it is located. This house belongs to an area with such an specific and unique geology. Translated as the red and black villages the traditional construction techniques use to work with red stone in some cases (because of the strong presence of iron in the terrain) and black in others, because of slate as the main material. Wood was protected with burnt oil back then and black paint nowadays, changing the natural percepction of wood. Both strong identities, our interest in a foreign culture and the traditional local constructions colide in this somehow experimental project. The house is a pavillion, a single room that can be freely transformed. It would be completely open in its whole lenght to a longitudinal garden stablishing a continous relationship with the compressed landscape in it.
