Casa Antigüeña: Tragaluz

Casa Antigüeña: Tragaluz

The tragaluces (sky lights) are those crystal blocks you see at the far end. Craig was asking if the the light washing the back wall in the kitchen was coming from the cupola. I promised Craig I was going to show the origin of the light washing the back wall in the kitchen. Well, the mystery is resolved; the light comes through those sky lights or crystal blocks you see here, which are located in the roof, right behind the cupola. Simple and effective, don’t you think?

Boy, how many architectonic terms in Spanish have you learnt through the Casa Antigüeña series?
