Single-family house Project B8
Construction of a single-family house in the province of Girona
Single-family house in the province of Girona. Inside, the initially isotropic and aligned structure is organised into three courtyards. The resulting subspaces are occupied by the different common areas of the house: kitchen, dining room and living room. Each courtyard is an external extension of the adjoining living areas. The remaining fourth bay is reserved for the bedroom wing.
The materiality of the house is subordinated to the roof structure. A white painted concrete cantilever gives the building its character. It is ramified in beams and vaults, and floats four metres above the ground floor. Below this element, a mat construction system connects to the floor, with local ceramic tiles and rendered walls. Timeless traditional materials are combined with modern glazed surfaces around the courtyards.
