Tangram, Sisallete House in Cadrete (Zaragoza)

Designed by the Zaragoza practice of David Martínez, Tangram, the Sisallete House is located in the town of Cadrete, in Zaragoza province, 12 kilometers from Zaragoza city. The one-family dwelling is defined by its broad and flat, slopeless site. The elongated prism stretches in a north-to-south direction to protect itself against the north wind, facilitating cross ventilation and optimizing views of the Huerva Valley while maintaining privacy. The rectangular form is fragmented into three modules with pitched roofs containing – from the street inward – the garage and service spaces, a central area with the kitchen and living room, and the bedrooms. The atrium gives continuity to the complex and also enhances visual connections because the other two modules that flank it open onto it.
