Casa Manacas

This house is for young people, who live on the road, love music, painting and photography. Also a lot of architecture and nature: inside and outside.

The couple, still childless, likes things uncomplicated.

House gestures are also simple. Large openings to the landscape and marquees, as functions unfolding: entrance porch becomes brises-soleil, then balcony.

It is a sum of plans, it signals and enriches paths and perspectives.

The countenance is composed of transparencies and semi-transparencies, filtered lights, revealing atmospheres sometimes of intimacy, sometimes of extroversion.

Space to keep and receive, moon and sun, a bit of mystery and a bit of question.
