House in Pedralbes / BCarchitects

This detached house is located in the upper area of Barcelona . The project proposed to move the building to the back of the site in order to achieve the best orientations to the south and east, and to have a generous garden. In addition, the development of the house from the highest point of the land gets the best views of the sea, to the city of Barcelonaand also to the Collserola mountain range. Its proximity to a ring road required a formal solution to noise pollution. Estudio BC resolved it in the house, arranging a wooden skin formed by vertical slats, which covers the rear and side facade, and at the edge of the plot, by means of a green wall-talud that reinforces the protection against noise.
