This spectacular private property is located in Empordà, Girona, Spain.
It was designed by Núria Selva Villaronga and completed in 2011.
Private Property Empordà by Núria Selva Villaronga:
“A small village, in the Baix Empordà region, formed by a handful of old houses folded along a “U” shaped street the middle of which the square that opens up the view to the church hangs from, and two or 3 plots, old orchards however to be construct, is the setting for this home´s project.
The threads of the project are the fitting of the developing in this friendly, tiny and peaceful atmosphere and the development of a residential plan not entirely standard, defined by the property.
The home occupies a plot of irregular shape which types an esplanade lifted from the street´s gradient. The compacted volume, 4 winds and gabled roof, involves the fundamental characteristics of a rural home. The exterior wall coverings of all-natural stone windowed the classic way, the tile roof with eaves of ceramic tile, the arched spaces vaulted with bricks and the openings resolved with dark woodcraft and Venetian booklet blinds, are the expressive components that blend the home with the atmosphere and naturally integrate it.
In spite of the shape of the plot, the building´s plant has an orthogonal matrix defined by two displaced rectangles that overlap. From one particular of these rectangles drifts the enclosed volume gabled roof the other marks the arcades on the ground floor and very first floor terraces, which means, open spaces that serve the inside plan.
The access, each pedestrian and vehicular, is performed by the north side of the plot. The ground floor, in reality, unfolds into two levels. The reduced level floor that occupies the strip next to the street is accessed from the it with a moderate slope, while the back strip southwards´ oriented, is leveled with the gradient and connects to the garden.
The scale occupies a central position in the plant. Saves the gap between the areas of the ground floor and continues till the initial floor and the undercovered not inhabitable space.
The ground floor´s unfolding into two levels has correspondence with its makes use of: parking in the side of the street, living-space, workplace and guests´ bedroom, plus some service rooms, in the high slope overlooking the garden. The floor´s inhabitable segment is surrounded on the outdoors by a porched space covered with brick vaults, which extends it to the garden facing south.
The very first floor houses the a lot more private system with a living space- dining space and an open kitchen, also facing a porch excavated from the major volume and terraces, in addition to 3 double bedrooms, each and every with its personal bathroom.
An outside staircase attached to the porched volume connects the outdoor spaces and garden. The strategy for landscaping the outdoors has been the paving about the home following the straight guidelines marked by it, leaving jagged edges cost-free to plant and extend the paved space around the property with pieces of rectangular plant, a single paved with gravel containing a pergola with roses, an additional woodpaved, subsequent to a hydromassage mini- pool. At the finish of the garden, there are two rows of fruit trees and a modest orchard.”
