Situated in a typical road of the Valencian neighbourhood of El Cabañal, the Mirasol home is recovered as a singular piece of this vital seaside district of the town of Valencia.

A modest, unpretentious and nameless development that follows the attribute typology of these outdated fishermen’s homes that when formed the streets of the neighbourhood.

Rescuing the legacy of the outdated constructing, the intervention relies on the actual strategy to a few of its most attribute parts: whether or not it’s the case of the facade, delicately cut up from the historic residential constructing to which it belongs; or the physique of skylight, which within the method of a sunflower (mirasol), it rises with autonomy and significance over the traditional roofs of the neighbourhood.

It appears pure, subsequently, that from a spatial viewpoint, this identical skylight units itself aside as essentially the most vital component of the home. A real void of sunshine (and shadow) able to retaining inside its surfaces the fragile nuances that the Mediterranean mild provides us through the day.

Thus the home will change its ambiance, and subsequently its inhabitation, because the sky shifts its look; from the imposing shadows of the morning minimize on the partitions of the “mirasol”, to the fragile tones of the sundown, by now extra delicate and type.

In the meantime, a small yard ensures a relentless and mild breeze over every of the rooms of the home, whether or not they’re on the bottom or second ground, because of the effectivity with which the “mirasol”, now changed into an enormous air flow duct, is ready to guidethe totally different upward and downward flows that wander by the areas of the home.
