Three homes in Incles
Incles, in the northeast of Andorra. This project involves developing three single-family homes.
The siting of the block aims to be as environmentally friendly as possible. The topography, with a steep slope from the middle of the plot, marks the point where the building ends. This volumetry means that a section of the building is suspended in the air, thereby maintaining the original look of the terrain. Access to the terrace is from the flattest part of the garden and turns the house into an exceptional vantage point.
The homes consist of a single elongated volume with the typical geometry of a gabled roof house with ground floor, first floor and semi-subterranean floor.
Access to the building is via the ground floor. The car park occupies part of the ground floor in a secondary volume. The entrance halls are between the main entrance and car park, from where the staircase leads to the ground floor and semi-subterranean floor. The sleeping quarters, three suites with access to the terrace on the side, can also be accessed from the ground floor itself:
Living rooms and kitchens are located on the lower level and enjoy superb views of the valley because of their elevated position. A room with bathroom and access to the terrace is located on the south side of the floor.
The semi-basement floor is dedicated to multi-purpose spaces and installations and is invisible from the outside. Like the remaining floors of the house, it also has access to an outdoor space, in this case to a small strip of land.
It could well be said that this is a project of adapting to the terrain. To enjoy it and, of course, to live it.
