The Spanish studio Arquitectura-G has completed the project of House Costa, a three-story house located in the cosmopolitan capital of the region of Catalonia, Barcelona.

In the house designed by Arquitectura-G, the façade is considered as a closing element, whose function is limited to being a wall that delimits the boundary of the interior space face to outside urban space.

“The project is an exercise in making a porch habitable around a patio garden,” explain the architects. The plot of land is surrounded by neighboring walls; as such, the home makes clever use of its arrangement, by focusing on enhancing the home’s core structure: its center.

The front façade is just one more wall that encloses an interior space that wants to be exterior,” the architects continue. The three-storey space is elegantly proportioned with the kind of precise spatial dimension that is typical of minimal architecture.
