Urban Villas. Gracia, Barcelona
In the heart of Gracia, Barcelona, the project recovers a traditional typology transformed into a contemporary urban villa.
The result is a two dwelling building with a rear garden and a special treatment of the relation with the context, the narrow street and the two tall buildings in both sides. The treatment of the volume over the terrace is one of the main challenges of the project improved with a roof garden giving a green accent to the tough stony aspect of the street and providing privacy to the houses.
The construction is based on local materials, comfort and sustainability combined in a calm and delicate contemporary design.
