Text description provided by the architects. The "House RB" is characterized by its conceptual synthesis, formal and material.

Being a home for a young couple, the design should be flexible enough to adapt in the future, with the arrival of children, allowing to modify its distribution, and even adding new bedrooms.

The house is organized by a series of patios that allow the natural ventilation of every room, and the inside/ outside connection, creating different situations of permeability.

The use of massive inverted beams located on the roof, allow a “column free”  “living room" area and a 60 sqm gallery.

As for the material aspect of the house, the concrete ceiling contrasts with travertine floors and white interior walls.

The structural solution also  generates a gallery of 60 m2 partially covered by a cantilevered slab 4 m x 15 m, devoid of props.

As for the outside, the facade is conceibed by the use of large glass panels in relation to the concrete beams of the roof and in contrast to the white brick walls and travertine.

Towards the front, a white brick masonry latching system generates a visual screen to the kitchen´s patio, providing both permeability and privacy at the same time.
