Apartment Tibbaut by RAS Arquitectura

Photographer: Jose Hevia

The project is carried out in an underground space near the sea, with barely any outside lighting and in serious humidity conditions. However, the interior of the simply-built, very small structure — barely 55m2 — had a real monumental look, presided over by two octagonal stone pillars from which domes and vaults rise to cover the space and bear the weight of the upper floors.

OYO was given carte blanche, which opened the possibility to focus on an ecological and compact building from the start.

Photographer: Adrien Williams
