'The project 'Casa de los 7 jardines' consists on a house with a large area, like a small village, which seeks to reduce its presence in the natural environment away from the white architecture of the vernacular populations and approaching the karst phenomena, such as caves, caves and gorges that the rain and time have been carved into the stone of gray tones that exists in the area. The project is understood as a geological landscape, surrounded by cork oaks and holm oaks as happens in the nearby cave of the two doors. To reduce the impact on the landscape, an aggregation system is used, which, by repeating a single piece, configures seven different external spaces, each of them frames a part of a privileged environment, generating a sequence of human landscapes, that blur between the vegetation producing the fiction of having no limits.'
