Botas Ghirlanda → Malaparte → Godard → Cavani | Jorge Gorostiza

Sierra House | Steyn Studio

As the name alludes, this house adopted its nickname from its distinct roof profile. ‘Sierra’ meaning both ‘saw’ and ‘mountain range’ in Spanish. A fortunate coincidence as the house is located between Madrid’s north-westerly neighbourhoods of Mirasierra (look at mountain) and Montecarmelo (Mount Carmel). The shape of the roof is a result of internal spatial requirements. Due to height restrictions, […]

La excusa de tomar el té | Piano Piano Studio

Todas las casas son ojos que resplandecen y acechan. Todas las casas son bocas que escupen, muerden y besan. Todas las casas son brazos que se empujan y se estrechan. A los intocables versos de Miguel Hernández en su Cancionero y Romancero de ausencias, yo añadiría que todas las casas son corazón que todo lo rige y nos mueve por […]
