Single family house in Castelló d'Empúries, Alt Empordà

The appropriation of the plot's area through continuity of indoor and outdoor generates the project. The visual axis of the transit area extends across the entire house and articulate the spaces as a comb, leaving the inner courtyard as a relationship between the different rooms looking for the best orientation. Two bodies define the volume : a tall and solid one, at the northern facade, that protects from north wind, and another cut lower, which favors the sun and visual conditions of the bedrooms of children and the courtyard of ground floor.

In the articulation of the two bodies is situated the staircase opened to interior courtyards.
