SHELTER

Shelter in Galicia for hikers of Camino de Santiago, 2016

 

The building is an informal aggregation of four house-shaped extrusions with a courtyard volume subtracted at its center. Each element repeats itself to save money and cost. The bedrooms are laid out to provide visual privacy fro other parts of the building, and connection to the landscape beyond. THere are a multitude of doors; inhabitatns can easily move between inside and out. The central courtyard is understood both as an object and space.
