Mirror House project has a clear and contemporary language, both for the materials and the shape. You decided to use mirrored surfaces so that the structure would blend in with the surrounding apple orchards. This demonstrates that it is possible to create a contemporary architecture perfectly integrated with the territory without using materials that can be found locally. What is the relationship you have with the context when making your projects?

The context is essential.
Now we have several active projects in many different countries where we are making studies and analysis that go beyond the physical and immediate context. Cultural parameters become significant and they strongly affect our projects. History, people’s minds, technology and culture are important elements that need to be taken into account when drafting a project. We always try to take these parameters and reinterpret them in a new and more contemporary way. So basically, social and cultural aspects of the location become the filters of our projects.
