The architect’s inspiration came from the reclaimed eucalyptus wood of the “bateas”. These are the mussel production platforms in the estuary and that constitute the very important local industry in “Ria da Arousa”, Spain. Eucalyptus wood is used in these platforms, and there are extensions of this tree in the region. The age of the wood is not hidden, and the different outer and inner faces of the wood are used to create different sensations. The house tries to borrow the tradition of the surroundings and reveal them through the story told in the design and the detailing.
