Courtyard house "3X"

A 96 m² detached house located in the historic town centre of Atzeneta del Maestrat (Castellón, Spain). The narrowness of the plot (3m wide) where it is situated, characterizes and serves as the basis to generate the project. This fact facilitated the work from the section, manifesting the house in “half floors” taking advantage of the position of the stairs. The house is centred around two basic elements, the staircase and the courtyard, both the staircase and the courtyard influenced the order of the living spaces.

As the house is located in a traditional and historical area, this factor had to be taken into account when designing the house. Therefore, only two traditional materials were used; white paint and wood. This ensured that the house fitted in with the buildings in the surrounding area.
