This home, created by Spanish firm Pepe Gascon Arquitecture for a plot on the hilly outskirts of Barcelona, was never ever actually meant to be a residence. Its original plans have been for a merely barbecue platform, a spot for its elderly landowners to go for gatherings with household members. However, as time went on, tiny additions had been made, beginning with a bathroom. Soon, a house started to type in the owners’; and architect’;s minds, and an official strategy was introduced for a modest, minimal property dedicated to the art of barbecue. Featuring straightforward supplies and fiendishly clever, but cost-powerful, style components, this compact property is very effectively-accomplished for an unintentional project. It is not unusable, either, with two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, and living space.
The original space of the dwelling was this barbecue platform, meant to host the owners’; loved ones and close friends. The house that grew from it was unintentional, but well thought out. It contains classic indoor cooking spaces of its own so as not to be impractical as a complete-time living spot.
The two principal materials utilised in the architecture are concrete and this sandy commercial-use brick, each of which have a down-to-earth humility about them, lending the house an unpretentious atmosphere.
An interior hallway leads all the way outdoors from the living room to one particular end of the residence. It is open in the photoshoot, but it’;s not totally clear regardless of whether the space is meant to be covered by a window.
An uninterrupted rectangular footprint for the dwelling is preserved by the addition of a concrete sidewalk at the rear stemming from its offset exit. This stroll runs parallel to the home’;s interior hallway.
At the time of the photoshoot, the developing had not but been furnished, so this bedroom is indistinguishable from any other space. Nonetheless, all industrial material choices you see are finalized, and will be the long-term finishes of the home’;s walls, ceilings, and floors.
As for the openness of interior spaces, the roof’;s slope is most evident in the home’;s only hallway, transitioning from area-height spaces for one particular section to tiny doorways on the back.
For such a compact home, there are much more exits than one would anticipate. The major hallway alone has two doors to the outside, as does the living area.
The biggest room of the house by a wide margin is its living space, which opens out onto the barbecue deck. The living room has two glass walls, providing views out into the yard and the Spanish hillside beyond.
