hidalgo hartmann arquitectura: casa pocafarina

barcelona studio hidalgo hartmann arquitectura has recently completed ‘casa pocafarina’, a single family residence designed to frame views to the distant landscape of girona, spain. situated upon a corner plot, this elevated cross-form dwelling reduces the impact of neighboring structures, creating a feeling of isolation for inhabitants. supported with four pillars, the four wings containing compact room layouts cantilever above a sub-grade garden level.

the volume is lifted one meter above the ground and is accessed from below through the garage and porch. a central outdoor courtyard provides sunlight into the upper floor spaces. the exterior and interior concrete surfaces reveal the use of wooden slats during the construction process, adding a subtle texture to the monochromatic material.

  • \”designed to frame views to the distant landscape of girona, spain.\” Why not show us then? The only view I see is the third image, and that view looks to be located in the corner of the home…not in the projecting wings\’ view.

    Despite the architects attempt with the diagram with arrows pointing in the direction of views…this home seems plopped ONTO the site…and that could just as easily be plooped anywhere else with that same diagram.

    I\’m not a fan. But that\’s my opinion.
