12 Houses in Icod by daolab

Located in Tenerife, a hilly island in the Atlantic, ‘Icod‘ is a hybrid of 12 houses between a block of apartments and detached houses with garden developed by daolab (David Arias Aldonza and Cristina del Buey García). The scheme along with its neighbor, produces a symbiosis so strong that autoregulates and promotes relations. This module repeated 6 times generates the building and achieves high energy an use efficiency, in order to to obtain a controlled, shaded and protected public space that serves as lung and heart. Also this scheme leads the community life on top to the roofing in a natural way providing this space of idiosyncrasy as recreation area (the garden) and qualifying the whole promotion.

The project includes homes with 2 and 3 rooms of small dimensions but with an enormous spatiality – Space is luxury. All houses have identical conditions of orientation, views, height, access, ventilation and lighting.
