Project Description

(“Text as submitted by the Architect”)

Located in Sant Pere i Sant Pau neighbourhood, in Tarragona, the building sits on a plot with a slope.

It is planned to be a project of rehabilitation, refurbishment and extension in order to adjust a new global project from a contemporary perspective, that could meet the needs and likings of the owners, which were far from those that conform to the original building.

A different activity is set for each space. The day program is developed in the lower level and the night one, in the second level. Otherwise, the living room and the main room are set in the south part, meanwhile, the north part takes in supporting spaces such as a garage, pantry, bathrooms and guests’ bedrooms.

It is a search to create an illuminated dwelling, with a united style and a minimalist decoration. To solve the illumination there is white the predominant colour in the whole building, which strengthens a space sensation, as well as large windows open to the south which on the main floor permits the relation between the pool and the living room.

The united style is solved by the materials used. As an example, there is Sant Vicenç stone as an outdoor pavement, which also recoat the north facade and is used as an interior pavement.
