The house is located on a plot of limited dimensions, characterized by a steep slope. It was considered necessary to develop the project closely integrating the property with the land in contrast to nearby properties which were built upwards, abandoning the land.

Toni House

  • Architect: Pepe Gascón
  • Name of Project: Toni House
  • Location: Carrer Baix Llobregat, 16. Vacarisses (Barcelona), Spain
  • Project Team: Josep Gascón, Jesús Gallego, Efrem López
  • Photographer: Eugeni Pons
  • Developer: Antonio Pérez Aguilar
  • Project area: 14,00 m2
  • Cost: 181.313,00 €

The result is a sloping architectural work, featuring a single volume embedded in the ground with straight and simple lines: it comprises a perfect square whose side measures eleven meters, distorted only by two incisions made in the roof from which the access hall to the house emerges and an intimate courtyard linked to the master bedroom.

The project is developed on three levels: on the lower level, on the ground floor, are the daytime areas, and on the two upper floors, the bedrooms. The property shows itself to be introverted displaying the charm of its interior, where simplicity and light shades predominate, making it an excellent setting for rest and relaxation. The dialogue with the landscape is established thanks to the openings to the outside and the glass façade, which bathe the interior of the house with light.
