Single family detached home in Plana de Morell, Ctra. dels Cortals, Anyós

This is a detached house in Plana de Morell, dels Cortals Anyós road.

The phased implementation of the house, reduces the visual impact on the environment. Only the height formed by the two upper levels of the house is appreciated, leaving the other two hidden, one underground and the other half buried.

As for the finishes, the continuous treatment of the exterior slate-colored leather stands out, leaving the public facade completely hidden.

Is looking a contrast between light and shade, so it proposes large openings with vertical wooden elements on the facade facing northwest, some mobile and other fixed, with this system, there is a pleasant feeling inside, leaving visible the valleys from the inside and becoming hidden from the outside.

The building rests on a stone base of the country. The asymmetric gabled roof, sloping towards the interior of the house, is hidden to reveal only the volumes created by the bodies that form the building.

Inside, the spaces on the ground floor and first floor are very open, the two floors communicate through a central vacuum. The intention of the project is to form a single space, to allow a fluid flow in the interior. The semi-basement works in a more conventional way, formed by three independent bedrooms, with the aim of creating more closed spaces and therefore more private.
