Caballerizas Carajo

2010–2011

Located in a natural environment in the mountains of Córdoba, the stables propose to establish an intense relationship with this landscape and express their program in an essential way. The emptiness or the absence of the built are just as important as its physical presence, thus guaranteeing a permeable construction that “filters” the landscape through it. In this sense, the expression of the work is defined by the essential and alternate arrangement of its program (boxes), which in turn is responsible for supporting the roof that unifies the whole. The project is completed with a deposit space that “anchors” the construction on the mountain and then becomes the basement that absorbs the unevenness of the terrain on which the “boxes” are located. The materiality is in tune with the environment since the basement and the tank are built with stone from the area, while the pits and the roof are materialized with a structural wooden framework.
