Casa Priego
By Canales & Lombardero -
Casa Priego + Lagares, in El Brillante, a wealthy suburb in Cordoba at the foot of the Sierra Morena, is a ‘patio house without a patio’ (2008-9). Distinct from everything else around it, it has two floors at the front, one at the back in dual twisted form with a shed and a pavilion overlooking a small garden. The big curved façade is a standard brick wall with a 5cm shell of sprayed-on concrete over wood. Traditionally Cordoba houses in Cordoba have a cool central patio linked to all their other rooms. Instead a curvilinear skylight extends to the second floor revealing the Sierra’s peaks, topping a 1.5 metre wide zigzagged entrance circulation.
