Homes: House In Capilla Del Monte by Marchisio Nanzer
House In Capilla Del Monte by Marchisio Nanzer
At the foot of Uritorco Hill, this stone and concrete house rises as a device through which to contemplate the changing spectacle of the mountain.
The theme of the project is perhaps return, the return of my parents to the village of their childhood, a non-circular return to memories and ghosts, although they are sometimes inevitable, but open to the search of the origin and identity as a platform to found the future and drift, to meet other views, of lost roads not travelled.
Deleuze and Guattari state: "sometimes it happens that old age grants, not an eternal youth but a sovereign freedom, a pure necessity where one enjoys a moment of grace between life and death, and in which all parts of the machine fit to send a message to the future that spans the ages."
The project was drawn and blurred many times until reaching a simple idea:
the gravity of matter is excavated to promote a space for this event, the precise scenario for the moment of grace. The functional distribution accompanies this concept, leaving the necessary limits for the development of domestic activities, the rest of the spaces merge into one. Thus, the house becomes a perforated wall to look at the Uritorco and its surrounding landscape, a wall that serves for contemplation, which arises as a failure of artificial nature on the crest of a hill, and like all artifice does not hide its clumsy and imperfect gesture against another nature: that of infinite movements and cyclic rituals.
