House and Studio YC
Barcelona - Spain
The space is arranged as five connected wings that project out from the centre of the plan, isolating an entrance hall and staircase, a kitchen, a living room, and three bedrooms from each other. The sprawling plan was influenced by the shape of the site and presence of existing trees. Glazed end walls allow each room to frame a different view of the rural surroundings. The main focus of the house is to capture segments of natural light and the change in space throughout the day and year depending on seasons and weather. The roofs of the units incline by 30 degrees from the flat top of the central hallway to the upper edge of the window panes, creating higher ceilings around the building's perimeter.
The earth-coloured stucco exterior was designed to help the building blend in with the surrounding landscape – a local planning stipulation.
Two of the wings are subdivided lengthwise to create separation between bedrooms and bathrooms.
