The project consists of a family home in the Valley d’en Bas, close to Olot.

The house, a building with pure and simple lines, is formed by an L-shaped pavilion, inspired by the Japanese houses. 

Transparency of the glass walls allowing constant communication with its surroundings and the horizontality of the single floor construction have been the main resources to blend the house into the scenery of the Pyrenean valley which surrounds it.

The iroko wood, present in the interior and the porch which surrounds the house, provides the aspect of a rustic construction, of horse stables or a small ranch.
