This development is located in the picturesque fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell, in the lower part of the Empordà, in the province of Girona. With less than 1000 inhabitants, and surrounded by coves, this village preserves the charm of yesteryear that attracts many visitors over the summer months, both from Barcelona and from countries such as France, Germany and the Netherlands.

The houses sit on a promontory facing east, towards the sea, backed by holm oak and pine forests. They are designed in an L-shape to seek the best orientation, views of the beach and the town of Calella.

The housing programme is developed by extending the interiors outwards through open spaces, porches, terraces and an infinity pool that appears to spill over into the forest.

The property is accessed through the porch, protected by a vertical lattice, to the double-height entrance hall that connects the ground and first floors. This leads to the central staircase and lift, which provides the main distribution between the different floors and separates the day and night areas.

The project foresees a total of 5 bedrooms, 2 on the ground floor and 3 on the first floor, with a bedroom and bathroom in the basement for the service staff, taking advantage of the rear courtyard that will bring light to the property’s lower floor.

The basement garage has parking spaces for 2 vehicles and there will be outdoor parking spaces for 2 more vehicles. The proposal is based on the choice of materials and colours without introducing contrasts. It is simple and functional, in harmony with the landscape and the location.
