Casa Cándida

From Karlen + Clemente’s study they try to interpret each project according to variables that can be synthesized in a single response, in a practical, concrete and, to the extent of our possibilities, artistic. For Casa Cándida the MEDIUM, the USE and the CHARACTER emerged as the main variables.

MEDIUM: If to construct supposes somehow to destroy the landscape, we must then destroy with criterion. The portion of land to intervene had as surprising elements the presence of a large tree in its center and an important view of the lake from its rear façade, coinciding with the best North orientation.

These 3 elements: milestone, landscape and orientation are what guided the way of implementation of the construction. It consists of a typical “L” scheme that embraces the tree, opening towards the North and East visuals and closing towards the South and West front, which grants greater privacy and protection in these less favorable orientations.

One of the wings forms the diurnal and social zones, penetrating the patio and advancing towards the lake, while in the other the nocturnal zones and services lie down. To finish capturing the landscape, the master suite expands into a huge balcony crowning the top floor. The distribution and entrance hall was designed as a window from where the tree can be appreciated, reinforcing its presence as the axis of the project both horizontally and vertically.

USE: Functionally, the project is framed within the so-called non-permanent housing. Designed to vacation, hold meetings or even for a future retirement, the house had to respond to the requirements of leisure and relaxation as well as its connection with the exterior and landscape. As a result, large social areas, multiple nighttime dependencies, flexible service areas and generous storage places for different types of vehicles and accessories are obtained.

CHARACTER: We try to get the illusion of something permanent, as if the house had always been there, or at least for a long time. We fight for a feeling of timelessness, from there the earthy colors like the mountains of the mountain landscape and the choice of concrete that wants to be eternal, like the stone.

From the street the house does not pretend to be kind, it is closed and heavy, refusing in some way to the outside. On the other side the thing changes, looking to be open and interesting, thrown into the landscape, with a mirror of water that tries to touch that other that is beyond, made with the same element. In both cases we aim to achieve the joy of the beautiful form, we hope that with some success.
