Called the Ch_V House, this contemporary residence was created by Aguilera Guerrero for a client in Catalunya, Spain.
It is a contemporary residence where perforations on its facade allow natural light to enter the home and provide privacy at the same time. The house itself is considered from an abstract conception of shape, a subjective act which structures the program with shape criteria.
At the first moment of the said conception, and consequently, the architects did not have in mind functional criteria that could give them the pattern to the homeâ€™s project.
What fed the architectsâ€™ â€˜projective discipline was the tectonics shape which was able to bring an oder to the material, or the mass, prior to the architectural, or the sculpture and paining, it is constructed, then, a structure of relations which include visual and sensory that synthesize reasons, as well as projective values.
Located in Tarragona, Catalunya, Spain, this contemporary residence is where the presence of plastic material which can be found in the form of color, texture, vibrancy, brightness, and transparency, becomes attributes of construction elements, as well as becomes something that gives the home visual quality at the architectural object.
At the early stage the architects did not want to show the plastic presence of the material but let the conceived object become only a frozen form instead.
The term â€˜frozen formâ€™ gives us a clue about the projective arguments and the reasoning that had been discoursed. Under circumstances like the programme, the place, the views, the environment, as well as the orientation, some purely functional issues of architectonics became here in mere contents that were subsequently implicit.
