The site is a complex, triangular piece of land overlooking the Mediterranean Sea near the city of Barcelona.
The program required a weekend house with four bedrooms. To guarantee maximum independence, each room needed its own bathroom and terrace. The ground floor is a large open collective space.
The project results in a home containing a symbolic reference to a sea shell. The sea shell is used as a metaphor for its poetic mystery and complex geometry.
