Barcelona-based firm H ARQUITECTES built a home in Catalonia with two courtyards and a central garden.
House 1014 features a remarkable red brick, that spans the gap between two crumbling facades on a street in Granollers, Barcelona. Two brick patios bracket the family home, offering a transition area from street accesses on either side of the block, while a further garden splits the space into two distinct halves – one serves for more private domestic activities, and another for one for entertainment.
To create a pedestrian entrance from a street, an original stone facade with ornamental window was preserved to create a pedestrian entrance from a street. "The sequence of spaces creates some kind of ambiguity about what is an interior or exterior space," said the architects.
The House 1014 has been awarded at the Wienerberger Brick Award 2016.
