Perched on the edge of a plateau in the forest of Matarraña, Spain, the Solo House II is meant to highlight its surroundings, not to distract from. Its circular form rides the edge of its elevated plot, creating a courtyard in its center. A glass facade allows for panoramic views of the rustic landscape while sliding mesh curtains act as both a private barrier as well as an access point to the exterior. Due to its rural setting, the house is completely self-sustaining, operating off of photovoltaic panels and a water collection and purification system.
