The project is located in Puigmoltó, a built-up area from the mediaeval near San Pere de Ribes.
It is composed by several traditional weekend houses with white façades, thick walls and narrow windows with controlled views to the streets but opened to their backyard garden.
The aim of the refurbishment at the Weekend House was to accommodate and old village house to the needs of the clients by reorganizing its spaces, allowing more flexibility in its inhabitation and providing more natural light and ventilation.
The pre-existing house was based on closed spatiality with segregated and predetermined uses, based on traditional domestic privacy. The project aims to recognize and enhance the hidden spatial potentiality of the existing construction and volume, giving to the interior of the house a complete different spatial perception.
The space evolves around an existing stone wall that structures and hierarchies all the different uses of the house: The ground floor is divided in 3 areas, the entrance hall, the kitchen and the living room, all interconnected by openings in the main wall, providing spatial continuity with large versatile rooms.
The main stair and a skylight that baths the entrance hall with natural light, transforms a daily act into a more poetic moment, connecting both floors.
The floor plan is mainly composed by two rooms with their own bathroom, offering always a spatial continuity where the differentiation between rooms is marked by threshold with sliding doors that allow this continuity at the same time that they give privacy. The wet rooms are thought as a prolongation of the rooms, with generous space, natural light and comfort giving importance to those more intimate moments in the daily life.
The materiality of the project tries to reinforce the main concepts, proposing a wood floor that changes direction in every different room separated by marble pieces remarking all the thresholds of the wall. The main stonewall is painted in white, leaving it with texture and differentiating it from the rest of the walls.
