B House is a modern residential project completed in 2011 by ch+qs arquitectos.
Located in Berrocal, Segovia, Spain, this single story home makes considerable use of wooden surfaces to add a clean sort of warmth.
B Residence by ch+qs arquitectos:
This is a humanized landscape of meadows, walls, ash, streams, a small-scale landscape, minimal, virtually domestic, and exactly where completely every little thing has yellow accents. In spring poke all yellow flowers. In the summer season, the cereal, harvest, and the Castilian heat are yellow.
Fall only comes right here in yellow ash, millions of tiny leaves that die in a lingering and dry yellow. In winter, yellow insists in glowing flashes of yellow lichen on the gray trunks of ash trees. And here the machines are yellow, the signs are yellow, all is yellow.
We purchased a meadow in this landscape 15 years ago, and following 12 years of yellow contemplation, we decided to develop a property there, a refuge, a piece of landscape as a frame, a small inhabited threshold with two views, east and west.
To the west, a nearby view of rocks, moss, brambles and ancient ash. And to the east, the distant dawn over the yellow mountains. This double view and the body completed the design and style of the residence.
Everything is small, almost everything is short, every thing has a tiny scale. From outside, the view slides over the house:
The eye only stops at a yellow gate guarding the doorway, and a yellow chimney that warms it, the rest is invisible.
And when sitting, stopping in the doorway, the home disappears and the world continues in yellow.”
