Circled around a hilltop, the second Solo House endeavours to make itself continuous with the Matarraña landscape: rails suspend sliding wall sections that can be pulled back to open the holiday home entirely to its surroundings, and four sets of columns support the floating disc of the roof. Like Pezo von Ellrichshausen’s contribution to the series, the house is arranged symmetrically around a simple geometry: a circular plan made impossible by most architectural sites.
