Rode House by Pezo Von Ellrichshausen
Rode House is made out of local timber by Pezo Von Ellrichshausen, an art, and architecture studio established in conception. The structure is defined by the polar array of forty-five rigid frames. While walls and ceilings are clad with boards, a traditional thin wooden shingle covers the conic roof. Knowing that the island is not only well known for the exuberant myths and legends but for a refined artisanal carpentry knowledge expressed both in churches and boats, accepting that something of that local knowledge would inform our project, we preferred to had in mind that delicate artlessness of a totally forgotten wooden padlock.
