House in the Pyrenees was designed by studio Cadaval & Solà-Morales and is located in Canejan, a small village in the Val d’Aran, a valley in Catalonia, northern Spain.
With an exterior partially defined by stone and surrounded by a picturesque rural environment, this home exudes so much warmth, that it is difficult to anticipate its highly modern interior design: “The project elaborates on a series of interior horizontal partitions that are supported by two vertical containers that behave both as structural elements and as divisions of the continuous spaces. Those vertical elements generate vertical continuity within the overall house, and even allow to eventually transform it into two independent homes. But more than any other thing the project places on top of the last slab a vast continuous roof made out of two planes that in their intersection generate a long sore that enables the view of the summit of the mountain from the interior.” Each room features plenty of windows, flooding the house in natural light. Minimalist and tasteful, this Spanish House makes for a wonderful mountain retreat.
