Located in the countryside around the city of Elche in Spain, this inspiring brick home was designed in 2015 by Mesura.
IV House, designed by MESURA is an ambitious work marked by its long period of design and building, designed from the location&demand and formalized from its systems&details.
It is located in the countryside around the city of Elche, in a hot and humid climate and barren landscape. The site consists of an existing home in the center of the field, leaving undefined surroundings: bad quality spaces and no exterior-interior relationship.
The ingredients introduced into the architectural equation (adding to implementation intentions in place and the response to the program) to IV are: structure, human scale, modulation and the atmosphere. All these ingredients are embodied through two main systems in place: Walls + Vaults and service packs.
