Jury feedback summary
A-Casa is based on dual concepts of the house. The first is to be a landmark with an identity related to its site, the second as a place to feel comfortable, constructed using local materials and techniques. This proposition focuses on the archetypal house form of four walls and a pitched roof. Here, the roof is reinterpreted as a sort of geometrical landmark - the only component of the building visible from the street. The roof is opaque, enclosing comfortable and private spaces. The walls below open up to the site for indoor-outdoor connectivity.
