Casa X by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

Synthesis and containment. This is the ethos of how Barcelona and Mexico City-based architects Cadaval & Solà-Morales operate (and incidentally, the name of an award-winning documentary on their work).

Cited by Wallpaper magazine as one of the World’s Ten Best and by Architectural Record as one of the Top Ten International Architectural Firms, the award-winning duo create intelligent design solutions in a collaborative distillation of ideas. And this one, Casa X in Catalonia, is a knockout.

Constructed in monolithic forms in the shape of a giant ‘X’, the home is a bold stylistic departure that makes a dramatic impact while remaining sensitive and responsive to its environment.

Answering the challenges of the steep sloping site, the duo responded with an ingenious design that even preserved the majestic pine tree at its center, while showcasing the jaw-dropping views of the surrounding pine valley, the mountains and the Mediterranean from every room.

Collaborating with Barcelona based interior designer Sandra Soler, the soaring, light filled-interiors and epic proportions give you a sky high perspective, while Soler’s restrained minimalist approach is in perfect synthesis with the structure.

Casa X is an interactive, sensory experience in unique harmony with both human and natural design.
