César Manrique House in the village of Haria.
César Manrique House
In 1988, César Manrique moved his residence to Haría Tahíche Taro. He moved into a house built on the ruins belonging
to a popular house, located on a farm of 11,261 meters square, the artist conditioned and remodeled in patterns of vernacular architecture of the island. He took some walls and materials, but true to its hybrid behavior, also incorporated some modern episode, like the bathroom, which responds to the original conception of the function space, as practiced in Tahíche Taro.
The house, a square and surrounded by a large garden with palm trees, originally comprised two courtyards, balconies, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two small dining rooms, kitchen and living room with stone fireplace. Manrique widely used stone and wood as reference materials.
Both the typology as the space and character of this second house Manrique are very different to those of Tahíche Taro. More intimate, cozy and conventional, in the midst of an ancient palm grove, the residence of Haria supports personality in good taste, the allusions to traditional architecture and peaceful interaction with the natural and historic environment, denying spectacular. The artist recycles materials and integrates numerous decontextualized objects, which are shown with purely aesthetic value.
Also attached to the main house, enabled a staff apartment. In 1992, he began a facility expansion, which was unfinished at his death. Was to incorporate the set adjacent to a pool hall, and a new bath room with conservatory.
On the farm, the artist provided two separate architectural pieces of the central building, a garage and a large paint shop, half buried, of 233 m2.
