Segura House


Matadepera, Barcelona province



The Segura house is the result of an absolute involvement and close collaboration betweeen the owner and the technical team.

It shows the possibility of carrying out a project without any conceptual barriers, excepting only economic ones, or at least those that delimited the project. The house is developed on a topographically complex site, with a steep slope from west to east. As a result, it was decided to create a house with an entrance at the highest part of the lot, and have the rest of the building extending over the existing forest, supported by three V-shaped pillars.

The building is oriented completely toward the ¨flying¨ part, where there are impressive views of St. Llorenç del Munt and the Barcelonés province, and even sea views of the Mediterranean coastline.

From this part extend ¨flying¨ terraces, suspended by steel cables that are supported by a system of turnbuckles connected to the V-shaped pillars. The building consists of two bodies, the first of a single floor placed on the ground, where there is a garage. The second consists of a large parallelepiped with a trapezoidal shape both in the horizontal and vertical planes. The east and south facades and part of the north are completely made of double-height glass that follow the angle of the V-shaped pillars.

The interior distribution is very open with a significant part being double-height, which means that it functions almost as a single space.

In this case the design of the resulting space, as contents and container together, enjoy an intrinsic coherence that converts it into a unique object.
