This project began from an owners’ list of wishes and hopes for their new home give to the Harquitectes Studio. One of the main goals was to achieve a close and essential relationship between the house and the garden in such a way that they both became the extension of each other, and it was done with the help of glazed panels. The owners wanted to place the maximum number of rooms on the ground floor yet keeping the garden free from masonry work volumes. This idea is developed through a volumetric composition shaped in three boxes spread throughout the garden, almost aligned and located in the plot northern side creating a wide outer zone facing south.
The spaces created between the three boxes are covered sheltering two different environments, open to the garden in north-south direction and can be closed with big folding windows. These spaces offer a very different atmosphere, much more related to the garden area than to the house. About volumes, the house is composed of three brick masonry cubes of different heights set parallel to the back street. The interior décor is simple, modern and eye-catching: every room has a detail or several details that accentuate it. The masonry motif is continued in the inner décor, too, and you can see whitewashed bricks in various rooms. Using light-colored wood in décor makes the home look comfier and warmer. The house is conditioned with a geothermal heat pump and an under floor heating system that slightly refreshes the house during summer, avoiding an air conditioned system to dehumidify.
