“There, when the mud is soft,
sings his heartfelt joy.
I would like to be an oven bird
and make my cabin sing.
Because the house is the center
of all love and skill,
he gets it out of his head
and puts his heart into it.
He works it in straw and mud,
he’s doing great
that in mud and straw
is a bizarre architect.”
“The Hornero” – Leopoldo Lugones
“For the hornero (oven bird), building is protection,” said a renowned ornithologist when consulted about the lifestyle of this constructive bird. In the same eagerness, families build their homes, aiming to create a home where life develops. room to grow and receive family members.
With the two volumes rising from the natural terrain, it is clearly illustrated that volumetric solidity is not synonymous with heaviness. Materiality, such as aluminum and glass, creates a light atmosphere on the facade and the phenomenological sensation within. A few rational volumes, which house a predominantly residential program, together with horizontal elements create a dynamic yet harmonious formal language.
The mastery in the use of rammed earth allows us to see the project and the landscape as a whole, because thanks to its materiality and natural texture it allows a relationship in which the architecture is fully adapted to the site and not an invasive sensation to the natural context where “Los Horneros” is implanted. It is worth mentioning the southwest orientation in which the project is located, which makes it possible to consider the project as an ecological and sustainable architectural design. From the start, this orientation seeks to reduce cooling and artificial lighting for most of the day, ideal for a summer city like San Bernardino.
In its interior environments, the combination of alternative materiality, such as the wall and the aforementioned orientation, allows a pleasant internal microclimate and comfort for the users. It is also important to mention the spaciousness and housing functionality of “Los Horneros”, which allow fluidity and dynamism in their routes between houses and their natural environment, while providing a perception of a more intimate and familiar shelter.
