a perfect retreat : architecture : casa ugalde : 1953 : jose antonio coderch

i think one of the most beautiful thing about casa ugalde, by jose antonio coderch, is that on first glance it could be a typical white mediterranean house nestled in amongst the pine trees. just 30 minutes north of barcelona, this house is a surprising array of shapes, spaces and views, simple yet complex in the forms and volumes. paradise. via : afasia/manuel valls : casa ugalde                       .

  1. A beautiful house… Still fresh after 60 years. I love that it offers so many complex interactions with the landscape: many moments of repose, activity, delight, contemplation.
