b - Patio, Family House

David Domínguez Fuster, Christian Sintes

Description Technical file

The use of cross-laminated wood elements and the plan to use sustainable heating systems qualify this prefab-construction family house project.

The house is situated on the outskirts of a small town in the Baix Empordà region, on the limit between the constructions and the fields that surround the town. This unique location leads it to close itself off from the street, turning its back to the town, and to open up to the vistas through large windows. Another feature of this spot is the presence of the northern wind. Given this adverse factor, the home closes itself off in the north façade and opens up to a patio in the south façade. It is thus understood as a sequence of closed and open spaces in which there is always a visual relationship with the exterior.

The structure is divided into two floors to adapt to the gradient between the street and the topography. On the upper floor, where the access is located, there is a study with bathroom and kitchen. There is also an outdoor two-car parking area. The lower floor revolves around a patio and is the home’s main floor. Here are the spaces for the living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The entire building was constructed entirely from exposed cross-laminated wood. It also includes a biomass boiler and a heater system that regulates the boiler’s consumption.
