location Cañete
function private house
contributed by edu_zam

The project seeks to create the necessary intimacy to live in the desert and to 'domesticate' it without denying or betraying its characteristics. Barclay & Crousse started by conceiving a pure solid which would appear to have always been there. During the design process, we "excavated" this theoretical solid, removing matter bit-by-bit, just as archaeologists would remove sand to discover the pre-Columbian ruins in this region. The resulting exterior spaces merge with interior spaces in a continuous fluid space within an enclosure that pushes the ambiguity between interior and exterior spaces to its limits.
