Blurring Land and Water

Water and Land, Light and Shadow — the project blurs the boundaries of place and senses. Construction happens at the island’s edges, welcoming the flows from the sea, facing the prosperous harbor to the west of Illa del Rei. The trail along the coastline connects the dwelling spaces on the ground level where artists enter the subterranean studio. The roman concrete structure was cast on-site and elevated upon the stone chamber. Water erodes the surfaces, weathers the concrete, and exposes the aggregates. A continuous long cane roof, or wattle pergola, shades the hollow space in-between the two levels. In this way, the terraces are protected from the Mediterranean sun, and the roof filters the light creating a play of light and shadow.
