New Catalan House Inspired by the Old Farm Buildings 1

This catalan house is inspired by the old farm buildings that they used to appear outskirts the historical cities centre. The idea starts from the colocation of a principal volume that would include the public spaces of the house and the other smaller volumes contain the private ones. There are gardens between the volumes to favor the relationship.

The volumes of the ground floor, by their materiality, remain linked to the ground while the principal one is dematerialized becoming in a piece supported between volumes. In this way, the placement of volumes creates a void where it’s located the main spaces in total relation with the exterior space. From the street, it’s a simple enclosure. From the garden, a house that is projected towards the landscape.
