TEd’A Arquitectes built this house from old walls made of characteristic local sandstone. All the walls were dismantled in order to reuse them. The pieces were handled one by one, trying to take advantage of the maximum number, whether they were whole or not.
“TEd’A Arquitectes has revisited and evaluated places and buildings, customs and memories, manufacturers, traders and individuals involved in the local construction sector. Precise knowledge of this physical and lived heritage has become the conceptual lens through which they focus their own thinking, their conduct and their analysis of phenomena worthy of being redirected. […] Their aim is the symbiotic relationship between life and architecture, not architecture in itself”.
“TEd’A Arquitectes transform what is vernacular and local. […] These transformed references, these homages and reinterpretations are the architects’ hallmark: evolution rather than revolution. […] The strength of their imagination is focused on adapting these precedents just for the task at hand. This adaptation is a conscious form of transformation”.
