As the name alludes, this house adopted its nickname from its distinct roof profile. ‘Sierra’ meaning both ‘saw’ and ‘mountain range’ in Spanish.

PLACE´TA | Juan Moya arquitectura

Intervention is a reactive architecture faced to the hostility of urban conditions in the site and to the scheduled mechanicism proper of a lifestyle inherited from the 20th Century modernity.
