house for maria angeles and jose

in the small agricultural town of illora, positioned amongst a chaotic mix of urban typologies, spanish firm fresnada y zamora arquitectos 
have added the 'house for maria angeles and jose' to the fray, representing the token contemporary house. the 'L' shaped plan opens to the south oriented backyard patio to which all rooms are visually connected. in section, the form contains many bends and half-levels that differentiate programmatical elements within the residence as well as sliding translucent panes that create a dynamic facade. the angle in the elevation also helps to create a seamless roof line throughout the street.
