DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Dezanove by your architect london

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
House

INSPIRATION:
The house tries to borrow the tradition of the surroundings and reveal them through the story told in the design and the detailing. All shape, technology and materials are inspired in this fishing industry. The house resembles the old booths on top of these mussel platforms, and similarly to them, some parts of the house appear to float. The very intention of using this material, shape and technology was to integrate the architecture of the building with the culture and tradition of the area.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The inspiration of the architect came from the reclaimed eucalyptus wood of the bateas. These are the mussel production platforms that you see in the estuary and that constitute one of the most important local industry in Ria da Arousa, Spain. Eucalyptus wood is used in these platforms, and there are great extensions of this tree in the region. The age of the wood is not hidden, and the different outer and inner faces of the wood are used to create different sensations.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Cultural integration on the surrounding

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
As the house is in the waterfront, the application took from 2010 to 2012 and the site was finish in 14 months.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Reclaimed wood from the local fishing industry

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
For the whole project we used 625 beams of reclaimed eucalyptus wood

TAGS:
Dezanove House, inaki leite, your architect london, reclaimed wood

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A collaboration of research with the local craftsman of the fishing industry in the region made possible the new use of the reclaimed wood into a residential build. After few iterations regarding additional treatments and final composition as well as the detailing of the hardware for the movable parts, the final solution came after about 16 months (including collection)

CHALLENGE:
Integrate the industrial design for fishing into a dwelling

PROFILE:
The architect’s inspiration came from the reclaimed eucalyptus wood of the “bateas”. These are the mussel production platforms that you see in the estuary and that constitute one of the most important local industry in “Ria da Arousa”, Spain. Eucalyptus wood is used in these platforms, and there are great extensions of this tree in the region. The house tries to borrow the tradition of the surroundings and reveal them through the story told in the design and the detailing. All shape, technology and materials are inspired in this fishing industry. The house resembles the old booths on top of these mussel platforms, and similarly to them, some parts of the house appear to float. The very intention of using this material, shape and technology was to integrate the architecture of the building with the culture and tradition of the area. Therefore integration of culture is very important in its design. Some other premises to be achieve by the house were to respect its natural surroundings, had to be environmentally friendly, obtain maximum energy efficiency, bring in great natural light and achieve a relaxing atmosphere. In addition to this and as a special feature, the kitchen had to be spacious and play an important role in the core of the house as a key social space. The building process was challenging with the shape and slope of the plot, the local planning restrictions affecting new constructions in the coast, and the very hard rock that was found on the back of the site. We managed to overcome these difficulties and use some of them, like the rock, to our advantage. The final outcome is a house protected by the rock, open to the sea views and with the living room facing south to seek the sun. The space is divided into two interconnecting volumes. The more private one can be closed from the outside, and protected from the sun with the folding wooden shutters facing south. This private volume has the rough, stressed texture of the reclaimed wood on its outer façade. The opposite occurs in the public volume, which has the wood inside. The interior in this volume reveals a smoother cut of the wood, providing a sense of comfort and warmth, while the exterior has the raw concrete. This volume is the one that contains the main living and dining areas, has expansive south-facing glazing and allows you to see the peaceful waters of the estuary in front of the house. The age of the wood is not hidden, and the different outer and inner faces of the wood are used to create different sensations. In the living room the wood is purposely set to frame and direct the view to the exterior and in mind relaxing spaces. The design process did not stop with the building. It continued down to the furniture done by local craftsmen: leather door handles, wooden lamp, batea wood chairs, steel staircase, etc.
