CREUSeCARRASCO
 
location A Coruña
function private house
contributed by Scozia

The house is located in a compact site between large 19th-century town houses. Due to these site restrictions, the plan of the house is very narrow, with little aspect to exploit at the rear and sides. The largest windows are facing north, which pierce the heavy, carved stone façade like cracks. Due to the narrow plan the house is tall, with a lack of solar gains compensated by a light well that falls to its base, forming a courtyard. The house sits on a plinth formed by the garage and services, overlooking the Estadio Riazor. The façade and patios are clad in large pieces of Indian red Lakha granite, giving it a stark pink colour.
