Mountain House

Known as the house on the Castle Mountainside in Ayora, Valencia, Spain this elegant structure appears to have been carved right out of the mountainside it sits on.  The building's strong angled lines set up opportunities for playful surface transitions.  The designers at Fran Silvestre Arquitectos were sure to pay close attention to context and form, capturing the jagged surfaces and flaws in natural rock formations. The way in which the home receives light is very reminiscent of a cave, appropriate given the topographical context.
