House 31 of Whangshan Academy is a project of fusion of human habitation with the Chinese landscape. The construction is developed as a system of stacked spaces creating a pyramidal structure that resonates with the magic of the surrounding mountains. The functional organization of the house. It follows the idea proposed by the great Spanish master Alejandro de la Sota who recalled that during the night you do not need light and therefore you can live close to the earth, and during the day, we get up looking for the sun. The project is built with a very basic, dry and elemental concrete. The lower level houses the bedrooms while the living and working space is organized around a single multi-level space. The house is equipped with a second wooden skin, with a 1×1 meter grid, from which plants, bushes and trees typical of the local landscape emerge. In this way the house is habitable and the micro topography merges with nature to create new forms of life.
