House in Costa Brava by Dom Arquitectura

House in Costa Brava is a project designed by Dom Arquitectura. The south-facing plot is located in Montrás, with a slight slope towards the bottom of the site. The house is placed in the upper part of the land leaving most of the space at the front, where the pool and outdoor spaces are located. The main idea was to connect the interior spaces of the house with the outside, open the rooms to the garden and visually communicate the interior with the surrounding nature.

Private dwelling house by CHADO Architectural studio

Private dwelling house is a project designed by CHADO Architectural studio. A house for a family of four people uses the idea of a contrast between a monumental “shell” – and a transparent, filled with light and air “inside”. Squat forms of reinforced concrete are coated with bricks and stones, and panoramic glazing opens a view to the interior, which becomes a full-fledged element of the architecture. The symmetry of the building is dynamically emphasized by the pipe of a two-sided fireplace, which runs straight through the center of the facade.
