“The House in Cassà project is a single-family house built in a new neighbourhood in Cassà de la Selva (Girona).

The house is situated in a plot with a small slope facing the south which is divided in two different levels. The upper level hosts the main rooms and swimming pool whereas the lower level accommodates the garden and the parking.

The main rooms are distributed along a single floor divided in two concrete blocks –“night and day areas"– , with a double-height living room and a mezzanine creating a transparent space connecting both blocks.

The two blocks offer the needed degree of privacy to each space while taking into consideration the private views, the street, the forest and the solar orientation.

The northern backyard provides a pedestrian access in contact with the forest. The south porch-terrace faces the swimming pool.”

Great job in doing a house that look amazing in pictures but nobody would like to live on.
Designing a house with that huge glass walls in a Mediterrean climate is a kind of architectural suicide. The section is misleading, as this house will receive solar irradiance ALL year long creating an unconfortable space.
I would like to hear what the clients have to say in 4 or 5 years after living in it.

Lots of light but not a huge fan of the exposed concrete. Mainly because the concrete would require regular maintenance and if not it would look worn out and stained after 5 years. It can look really messy soon.
