Dwellings in Arenys de Mar

Houses built according to various models.

A group of 15 houses (350 m² each) located over a promontory with sea views to either side. The houses, built according to various models according to the land survey, orientation and level of street access, have parking areas at the top or bottom in some cases, but always follow the main schemes that Cocerch used for daytime and night time zones, where the served spaces and those for services (to follow the nomenclature of Louis Khan) are interconnected without producing junctions. Some houses have an inner patio and others no, one extends out gripping to the landscape, while other have towers that rise up, thus avoiding monotony in the whole project. To make them blend into the landscape, an enormous amount of earth had to be moved, one of the challenges in the project.
