Single-family house by Ferrolan Lab

In the heart of an old town district in Barcelona, where area is characterized by small, narrow and long plots, Ferrolan Lab designed this beautiful modern townhouse. This house is probably situated in one of the narrowest spaces around the neighborhood, as it measures only 3,7m wide. The plot is very long and connects two streets. The dimensions of the plot (3.7 m wide x 25m long), its location (between neighbouring walls) and its orientation (N-S) dictated the development of this housing.


"Our proposed architecture attempts to take these shortcomings and try to turn them into positives. Because of the limited front and the depth of the house, the treatment of light became the most important aspect of the project.

In addition, because of the pre-existing features, we decided to explore developing the house vertically, putting in different floors to meet the different needs of our project.

Therefore, the layout is distributed as follows:
At ground floor, a garage and a cinema. Then, in the mezzanine, there are two rooms connected by a living-study which opens to a patio garden.

The first floor. Here you are greeted with a courtyard. On one side of the courtyard you will find the dining-room and on the other, a kitchen that’s connected with a gallery which can be converted as a terrace during the summer.

On the second floor are the bedrooms, and finally we’ll find a pool terrace on the roof.
The distribution of the different rooms are built with large open spaces and communicate amongst themselves in an almost transparent way. By including the double spaces generated by the courtyard, the house becomes very flexible and reconfigurable, with the capacity to be changed at any moment."
