the starting point for 'candela house' by spanish firm zigzag arquitectura was the need for a house large enough for the variable and regular meeting of a family composed of 6 families, with a total of 10 adults and 8 children. the idea was to create a family shelter, with a low budget and the scarce construction resources available in a relatively isolated location.
arranged to capture the surrounding landscape, introducing it into the rooms of the house and avoiding direct views into the homes of the nearest neighbours.
