Alberto Campo Baeza. Gaspar House

Alberto Campo Baeza explains his project Gaspar House, built in Zahora, Cádiz, in 1992.

At the client’s insistence on abolute indepence, it was decided to create an enclosed precint, a “hortus conclusus” or closed grove. The house, defined by four enclosure walls of 3.5 meters, is based on a square measuring 18×18 meters which is subdivided into three equal parts.

The white colour of all the paraments contributes to the clarity and continuity of the architecture.

Simply, a horizontal, continuous, space is tensed by a horizontal light.
