Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem and Ramón Vilalta of RCR Architectes have designed a beautiful residence in Girona in the mountainous northeast corner of Spain. “Perched on an embankment between two pastures, the house consists of eleven boxes
overlooking farmland. The volumes, clad in weathered, rust-colored steel, resemble a row of traditional agricultural sheds whose dialectic between primitive shelter and modern dwelling becomes apparent upon close inspection. The house is approached
through a subterranean tunnel and garage carved under the embankment. Above, a hallway, sunk 5 feet below ground, connects all the boxes - private spaces, each with its own outward view.”
