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.

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.
