Casa V

Casa V is a redevelopment project by architecture team Dosis de Arquitectura of an existing house that was constructed in the early 1960s. A stunning volume of curved walls and stark white embody this holiday home for the owners for half a century. As the years went by, the growth of the family could not be contained in the original house hence the work to adapt and expand on the multi-generation, multi-purpose building.

Casa V was already located on a breathtaking site in La Coruña, Spain. The structure is reminiscent of Corbusier's nom de plume: A house is a machine for living in. Form follows function - it exists to serve its purpose of facilitating activities within and to experience the views of the landscape. The present architects have continued the legacy as they so eloquently describe it:

Spaces are defined by the unfolding of matter in space-time, which topologically adapts itself to what happens inside. The new house is formalized by the continuous flow of a completely neutral wrap – no edges, no color, no texture - and, within this wrapping, life, action, is the protagonist.

Dosis de Arquitectura have aligned the design language - the characteristics of the wrap and typography of the architecture - with full respect the original house both on the exterior as well as the interiors, something I am sure will definitely appreciated years beyond its time.
