Casas Reais

Casas Reais is a minimalist house located in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, designed by Concheiro de Montard. The first aim was to be able to comprehend the existing house, a space fragmented in small rooms with little light, to then visualize it as one single premise full of light. With this concept in mind, the architects decided to use the most out of its lighting possibilities using the two existing natural light sources in the house. (9)

The gallery facing north and three small openings on the east and west sides located on the thick stone walls. On one side, the house extends to the gallery embracing the sun light and the views of the old town. On the other side, the small existing windows are perceived as a whole, creating a space with pleasant and changing brightness throughout the day.
