Private House Empordà, Girona, Spain by Núria Selva Villaronga | via
A small village, in the Baix Empordà area, formed by a handful of old houses folded along a “U” shaped street the middle of which the square that opens up the view to the church hangs from, and two or three plots, old orchards yet to be build, is the setting for this home´s project.
The threads of the project are the fitting of the building in this friendly, small and peaceful atmosphere and the development of a residential program not entirely conventional, defined by the property.
The house occupies a plot of irregular shape which forms an esplanade lifted from the street´s gradient. The compacted volume, four winds and gabled roof, includes the fundamental features of a rural house. The exterior wall coverings of natural stone windowed the traditional way, the tile roof with eaves of ceramic tile, the arched spaces vaulted with bricks and the openings resolved with dark woodcraft and Venetian booklet blinds, are the expressive elements that blend the house with the environment and naturally integrate it.
