Article source: ARQUITECTURA-G 

The land where we intervene is a flat and elongated plot of 7.000m2 in the outskirts of Santa Margarida de Montbui. The plot initially had a building for agricultural use in a state of ruin that we were asked to transform into a single-family housing. The building regulations, according to which the pre-existing construction was considered as a farmhouse despite of being just a hut with fibrocement rooftop, didn´t allow any modification in terms of volumetrics and façade openings.

Cut out_haus h in Oberbozen (BZ), Italy by bergmeisterwolf architekten

Sunday, April 16th, 2017

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten

house h, along with the family-owned park hotel, is part of something greater, and yet an intimate haven – living in and with the surroundings. a simply formed monolith is placed on an incline. and yet, the house blends in with the terrain, optically leading to a ledge in the terrain. clear design vocabulary focused on reduction, and coarse, earthy grains in the concrete characterize the surface of the house. it is interrupted by terraces and loggias offset to the inside, seemingly dismissing the nearby train track. everything is scaled back a bit, be it the architecture or the materials used. the house is located at the very end of a park landscape. the idea was to find joining elements in the private residence and the hotel, to find coherence, in order to achieve a continuation in content and history.

The Project arises from the combination between levels and sights, which on the one hand, proposes relations of spacial interior continuity and on the other, it relates this interior with the horizons.

In the first floor, the main topographic levels were redefined as well as the natural paths that existed in the natural terrain to preserve the sensation of moving in the slope. This condition in addition with the size and orientation of the spans constantly frame new horizons of the beach and valley.
