This detached house in Rocafort is a composition of sober, clean and markedly horizontal volumes, with non-walkable flat roofs and large glazed areas. The building is positioned on a concrete structure, allowing the use of more lightweight metal pillars at particular points, such as the two porches. The exposed white brick cladding gives an airier feel to the house and visually connects the different heights of the composition. The perimeter of the plot is incorporated into the overall aesthetic of the building through the use of the same finishes on the wall and gates as on the façade.
The house’s two porches are the most powerful source of natural light in the day area. They link the interior of the house with the natural space of the garden outdoors, enveloping the building in a juxtaposition of light and greenery. Next to one of the porches is the swimming pool, which is slightly overhung by the terrace as if it were a small lagoon. The swimming pool is separated from the terrace by a glass balustrade, whose transparency allows residents to enjoy views of the water and garden from inside the house without creating any artificial barriers.
The embrasured windows feature a combination of fixed wooden panels and glass, and are perfectly integrated into the building. This system makes the windows appear wider, accentuating the horizontality of the house and lightening its visual weight.
The interior of the house was designed in such a way as to make sure every last detail is perfect. One example is the fireplace, which was produced as a sculptural piece with clean lines and incorporated into the carpentry surrounding it.
