Winning Architecture Project:"Casa Ter" by Mesura Studio


Spanish architecture studio Mesura designed Casa Ter- a rural retreat for a single-family-by taking inspiration from the local vernacular and landscape. What moved judges was its connection with the surroundings. It was built entirely of concrete and large elongated ceramic pieces. Both of the building materials were manufactured with natural clay from nearby La Bisbal, Spain. The project is a unique indoor-outdoor living concept.
