Montfullà House in Montfullà, Girona, Spain by Hidalgo Hartmann

We find ourselves on a horizontal ground, a corner plot raised on two large slopes like a vantage point from which to enjoy superb views towards the agricultural plain that stretches at his feet until reaching Salt and the city of Girona. It is thus an exceptional setting that claims for an intervention that recognizes the attributes of the site and put them in value. We placed a silent, hermetic volume that emerges from the site and adopts the original profile of the hill, like a fortress that visually dominate the landscape. The volume encloses itself from the outside and is protected from the mediocre constructions that surround it by using the broken geometry of two thick walls.

These walls comprise a continuous space from the inside out that creates in form of a terrace, a world of its own, which turns our attention to the distance. The section shows the continuity of its spaces from the outdoor space to the studio on the top floor across the living room and the courtyard that separates and unites at the same time. The use of concrete for the construction of the house gives the object weight, mass and texture which is needed to provide coherence to the idea.
