“Ruina” by Juan Pablo Guerra is a contemporary megalith that seeks to reinterpret a primitive architectural language through its dark materiality, its hard plasticity and its contrast between large and intimate spaces to meet the needs of a rest room.
The project is partially underground, giving the view as if it were a hole. The social space opens up panoramically and with a dark materiality that wants to disappear, the architecture focuses on the beauty of the space around the house.
The main access enters through a cavernous crevice, a compact hallway that leads you through the skylight to discover the main hall, a space where two bedrooms and a large social area are organized.
To inhabit an architecture, one seeks an intimate immensity, a structure close to immateriality, a space to contemplate the sky and nature. Sensations that remind us of the sadness of destruction.
