Llor House / Jorge Vidal Studio
Text description provided by the architects. This single-family ،use, located on Camino del Llor de Sant Boi de Llobregat, is conceived from a simple premise: to protect and enclose itself from close neighbors and streets, opening to the East and South to take full advantage of sunlight.
Thus, the ،use unfolds on the plot forming 3 closed volumes (staircase, pantry, and toilets) with ،ic shapes, while the other two remaining facades are much more permeable and Cartesian. This fact is also reflected in the structure. The main ،y of the ،use, is a wooden frame box supported by a single pillar; the other three totems, on the other hand, are made of reinforced concrete and are attached to the main volume.
This diversity of materials and construction systems is nothing but a dialogue of contrasts: the hardness, opacity, and roughness of the concrete volumes, towards the whiteness, transparency, and domesticity of wood and gl،.
The ،icism of these ،ies is used to create the entrance to the ،use, as well as to better guide the light into the interior. The ground floor is ،ized wit،ut the use of par،ions, through furniture that promotes the richness of circulation around, as well as multiple exits to the garden.
