Günther Vogt on Casa Hartley by Alberto Ponis

The interview is available on the website of what is a house for:




„I like Casa Hartley because it’s paradoxical. Unlike some of his other houses it has a strict geometrical rigor - its layout is based on concentric circles. Moreover, it is not a small house in terms of surface. The roof has significant shape and figure. Despite all of aforementioned features, it fits the scale, and the surroundings. It's intimately embedded in the landscape as if it was another rounded rock. When you see it from afar, it really blends with the macchia mediteraneaaround. Its shapes and its materiality make it one with the natural formations around. You could even overlook it passing by.“
