Creating sculptural architecture that includes the warmth of a home is a challenge. And this project, with its large dimensions, its ambition and its location dominating all of Barcelona, ran the risk of becoming a showhome worthy of a photo shoot, but not to live in. To give it visual rhythm, everything superfluous was eliminated and the house was divided into three volumes. And to provide the necessary balance, all the unique elements, including the staircase, were accumulated in a central module, wrapped in copper. In this way, more subtlety is achieved in the rest of the building, using austere masonry walls on the outside and warm materials on the inside.
