SB6 House

The brief was to create a contemporary home on a sleep mountain slopes in the outskirts of Barcelona with views over the hills and the city.

The home is essentially set into a pines forest, and is placed into the plot  minimizing its environmental impact.

The hard rocky soil was from the begging of the design a construction concern which drew the project to a very horizontal layout in order to reduce excavation works.

Our approach eschewed  decorative details and conventional finishing, and rather explored a reduced palette of tough materials in undifferentiated abstract shapes to make an architectural object which blends into the landscape, yet distinct from it.
