This bright white wedge-shaped house by Spanish studio Fran Silvestre Arquitectos thrusts out from the rock face behind it in the valley town of Ayora, near Ayora, Valencia.

The building is located in a landscape of unique beauty, the result of a natural and evident growth.

The mountain, topped by a castle, is covered by a blanket housing through a system of aggregation by simple juxtaposition of pieces generated fragmented target tissue that adapts to the topography.

The project proposes to integrate into the environment, respecting their strategies of adaptation to the environment and materials away from the mimesis that would lead to misleading historicism, and showing the time constructively to meet the requirements of the “new people.”
