Casa Lasso

A 2,500-square-foot residential structure, located near the small village of Trasierra halfway between the Basque country and Galicia—on Spain’s Northern Atlantic coast. Emerging from a windswept former cornfield overlooking the Gulf of Biscay, Casa Lasso intertwines the built structure with the landscape. This occupation forms a figure eight along the site’s longest diagonal and aligns itself with the movement of (direction of) the prevailing winds.
