Marés cavity wall (127)
It is always a pleasure, in a world that tends to the hypertechnological, to get back to historical constructive solutions, very well thought out, that coherently combine different local resources: natural and processed.
The solution is a cavity wall. A double wall where the interior, made with concrete blocks, is part of the main structure of the building; while the exterior, built with Marés stone, needs only to be self-supporting and is stabilized on the inner one.
In between both walls, a micro-ventilated cavity that allows drying water from condensation and rain water that could ooze, after days of rain, from the Marés stone wall of certain permeability.
