Albert Brito founded his own namesake company in 2011 while being young promising architect holding a degree from ETSAB in Barcelona. After the years of development based on three pillars: practice, teaching and research, now he can praise himself with impressive implementations, among which Viladecavalls stands out.
Located in small raised hill in Vallès, the house enters the beautiful site of an urban garden from one direction and enhances natural landscape from the other.
As the architect comments: „The project tries to incorporate the limit situation in which it is. On one side the village, isolated houses, urbanization. On the other side the landscape, the territory, the views towards Montserrat mountain. This duality builds the house geometry, its situation within the plot and the typology adopted.”
Driven by the need to respond in the project to the heritage of local architecture and traditional Catalan houses, Albert Brito and his team constructed the volume of four squared volumes hidden under slopping roof. "These volumes respond to this landscape-urbanization duality. Its position follows the guidelines that mark the geometry of the site, but at the same time opens it to the views," the architect explains. Every part answers to the need of the program what influence on its form. In turn, the slopping roof responds the constructive logic of traditional building of Catalan architecture.
