Guerrero House by Alberto Campo Baeza situated in Cádiz, Spain. Completed in 2005, the central and main axis of the 1,829 ft² (170 m²) home’s entrance is marked by four orange trees, flanked by low walls that hide service areas. The home “is the construction of a luminous shadow. To build a well-balanced house full of light and shade. We built very tall, 26 foot (8 meters) high, walls around a 108 x 60 foot (33 x 18-meter) rectangle and covered the central strip,30 ft x 60 ft (9 x 18 meters.) We raised the ceiling of the 30 x 30 ft (9 x 9 meter) central square to the same height as the 26 foot (8 meters) high outside walls. To fill this central space with shade, we opened it to the front and back, creating 10 feet (3 meters) deep porches that protect these openings from the sun, tempering the light. To either side, bedrooms, and baths. In the front courtyard, the entrance to the house, four orange trees mark the central and main axis, flanked by low walls that hide service areas. In the back courtyard, another four orange trees are similarly aligned. And at the end, carved into the ground, a trough-like pond stretches from side to side. The house is the construction of a luminous shadow.
