Casa Caballero in Barcelona – 35 sqm Turned into a Nice House

Casa Caballero in Barcelona - 35 sqm Turned into a Nice House (1)

Casa Caballero was completed in October 2015 by Spanish studio Agora Arquitectura. The house is situated in Barcelona and has an area of only 35 square meters.

Description by Agora: The building is wedged between two party walls of an ancient residential complex built in the district of Les Corts. A damp and dark floor of thirty five square meters, located in a narrow and abandoned inner courtyard, rediscovers a many times forgotten intestitial situation.

A sanitary flooring, in continuity with a vertical concrete block wall linings, create a shared air chamber with cross ventilation to control the humidity. Block walls scale the height of the space, serving as support for a private mezzanine bedroom that ventilates throught the main facade. A border birch wood box hides a water program that converges outwards. A translucent polycarbonate box appropiates a stripped inner courtyard dramatizing the interior experience. Exterior and interior get confused. Each one in their own place. Giving new sense of the rediscovered courtyard.
