Attempts to fill a void in the city.
The North face of the building holds the right balance of openings and colors to match the old-town style of Cabrera de Mar. It does so however with a composition that breathes new life into the neighborhood. This tone down contemporary language bursts out untethered towards the South side. Opened to the views and the sunlight, the concrete structure forms a grid that frames lodges and pergolas that stretch from the main building and protect the living spaces.
Each residence runs through from the wide hallway openings on the North face entrances and community areas, to the South face which is exposed in the form of patios, sun-decks and porches. Each home planned for a fluid transition between these two cardinal points by use of circular pathways between rooms; single and double roundabouts between rooms as well as visual diagonals that reach out across floors. Enclosed areas like bathrooms and closets are placed in the middle to allow this connecting movement.
All this is held together by concrete, pine wood and terracotta tiles. All of them simple yet straightforward and honest materials.
