Casa Montaña

English landscaper and his family, in love with Asturias, decided that their second home will be industrialized.

Dipped in a modern bath of contemporary formation, this chiselled home, embraced by its historical surroundings, does anything but fall short on the definite essence of what it takes to be industrial.

The house was produced during four months in a factory in Madrid and transferred to its final location at 600 km, crossing the Cantabrian mountain range, where it was assembled in only 5 hours. The black slate roof was placed by a local craftsman. Casa Montaña has a beautiful vertical Lunawood exterior cladding which makes it possible for the building to naturally adapt into the historical environment

Casa Montaña has been awarded with the German Häuser ‘The House of the Year’ Award and selected to the Spanish Architecture Biennial.

English clients, in love with Asturias, decide that their second home will be industrialized. Produced within four months in a factory in Madrid and transferred to its final location 600 km away, crossing the Cantabrian mountain range, where it will assemble in only 5 hours.

The project is developed on two levels, with a simple program that groups the installations in one of the three modules of 2.15 x 5.30 m that conform it. The metal staircase is the central element of the dwelling, around which the program runs and which dialogues with the chimney suspended from the living room. The upper floor contains the two rooms, separated by a light polycarbonate wall that sifts the light.

A home for an English landscaper and his family, actively developed with clients, involved in the project from the very beginning outset, showing absolute respect for the rural environment where it is located. A wonderful complex formed by an “hórreo” and a traditional dwelling, in process of rehabilitation is tourist accommodation, that still keeps alive the project.

New ways of conceiving housing, a high-quality product, that tries to approach to the automotive and aeronautics industry, that allows a future growth of the building offers a way of using the space in a much more dynamic, versatile and rational way.
