Thought modern design had little left for the ones looking to be surprised? Architects Cadaval & Solà-Morales completed the design for a highly contemporary residence with a twist, located on a very steep slope in Barcelona, Spain. The X-shaped house was the result of coping with the challenges of the site, while providing views of both the mountains and sea.
Spectacular from every standpoint, the X-House offers an original living premises, to say the least. The two-level structure of the residence is described as follows: “the top floor, incorporating a parking and allowing access to the house, is conceived as a private suite for the owners: main room, with dresser and washroom / toilet, and spacious studio. In the lower floor there is a clear distinction between the front and the rear of the house; the front part has a totally open and public nature, build up with a living area in a double high space next to a kitchen-dining room articulated around a significant marble table, 8m long. The rear part of the lower floor holds the rooms and service areas, which through the patios are given direct and protected views to the valley, the sea and the mountain”. How are the views from your end?
