Family house between party walls

Alonso-Balaguer y Arquitectos Asociados. Luis Alonso, arquitecto

Description Technical file

Finding a good solution to a problem is a paradigm resolved in this residential typology, where a very narrow and elongated plot between party walls serves to accommodate a family house several storeys in height and an eight-metre facade. The dwelling is structured through a succession of internal courtyards on to which all the rooms open, maintaining a pretended visual continuity of the space, in a vertical sense. On the outside, the block is characterised by glass enclosures that allow the massive penetration of light. The position of the vertical communications nucleus, that is, thelift and staircase, against the main facade, opening and permeabilising the views of the nearby park of the Turó del Putxet, a garden in a landscape style that in turn offers very good vistas of the city, is another one of the differentiating contributions to the solution.
