Casa en Tamariu by 05 AM Arquitectura
September 30, 2019 - Barcelona-Catalonia
Tasked with creating a residence on a very steep plot of land, the architects designed the slanted home to be two storeys that are raised off the inclined ground. "House In Tamariu" is positioned as south-facing, in order to maximize the near-constant sun exposure and “foster the best of outdoor life”.
Residents enter the home via a spiraling metal staircase from the street on the north side, leading to bedrooms on the second storey. The ground floor features an open plan, multi-purpose space that opens out on to a paved terrace.
Outside is a partially shaded outdoor space with a lawn for entertaining, which overlooks a large pool that allows residents to relax with unobstructed views of the ocean.
In general lines, it is a house where both the exterior and the interior are designed to enjoy the Mediterranean climate, placing all the main spaces on the south side, in front of the seaside.
