TA-office: House C

Settled in Barcelona, Spain, ‘house c’ designed by Spanish Atelier, RTA-Office, is a house that sets to explore the factors of geometry, material and transparency. This exploration reveals features of the inner workings of the home while hiding elements of others.

“the pre-existing conditions of the site which include a stone wall around the perimeter was the starting point
to the design. by bending and folding the layout, the dimensions of the space is maximized while
providing views from each principal room. angular cuts of glass penetrate the interior environment to create
a detachment between programs while introducing elements of natural light, reflection and transparency.
this open interface allows the space to communicate with its surroundings, transforming the atmosphere   
with a wide gradient of light. at dusk the house glows from within contrasting with the dark exterior skin.”
