The house has been designed in a parcel with extremely high topography. The parcel is located at the end of the city of Igualada, and the project will look to the landscape at the front.
The views are excellent and the mobility inside and outside the house will define the project.
The structural solution of the project is a continuous steel tube fitted in the earth at the extremes. A steel tube covered with aluminum panels which flies over the trees of the parcel.
