Anchored firmly into the hillside above Cabrils, this holiday home in Spain designed by Barcelona and Mexico City based firm, Cadaval & Solà-Morales is a tour-de-force of architectural and collaborative achievement.
The wildly unorthodox ‘X’ design is actually in harmonic response to the setting in the hills above Cabrils. The steep sloping hillside hovers over the valley, with breathtaking mountain and sea views from every room.
Soaring double height ceilings with vast expanses of glass and exposed concrete floors create the minimalist foundation of the design, while sharp angles optimize the jaw-dropping vistas.
Distributed over two floors, the ground floor living space leads into a state-of-the-art open plan kitchen with a bespoke marble table with ample room for entertaining and dining for ten. Divided into two parts, there are also three double bedrooms and two and a half baths placed at the back.
Upstairs is the luxurious master suite with a dressing room and spa bathroom, and a separate study/office all with spectacular views.
Barcelona based Sandra Soler Studios has created lively design interventions with Eames inspired furnishings, oversized graphics and original art that inspire.
The gardens slope down from the structure to an infinity pool and spa with a lounge terrace and barbecue area and a full, walk in sauna.
The rooftop terrace with a glass perimeter is an inspired addition that encompasses the entire top of the structure, placing you at the most dazzling of vantage points.
A powerful and bold design statement, this unique home is unabashedly modern, yet in gentle symbiosis with nature.
Wifi throughout, cable TV, climate control, kitchen and bath amenities, laundry facilities, garaged parking for two cars.
The town of Cabrils lies a half hour east of Barcelona and just ten minutes to the Mediterranean and many of Catalonia’s best beaches, hidden coves and coastal beauty, and sits adjacent to wooded walking trails through the surrounding pine forests.
A seaside town of celebrated artistic, culinary and cultural treasures, Barcelona is home to stunning Gothic, Medieval, Romanesque and Modernist masterpieces all housed along the sparkling Mediterranean with the Collserola Hills as a backdrop. The famous Eixample district is an area that has reinvented itself as one of the premier dining destinations of Barcelona with world class cuisine as well as a colorful and quirky area of shops, bars and cultural spaces in neighboring Raval. The Passeig de Gracia and Rambla Catalunya are praised by locals for being one of the nicest in central Barcelona. Sometimes referred to as the Cuadrado de Oro, it’s the epicenter for modernism in Barcelona and features the work of modernist architects Antoní Gaudi, Enric Sagnier and Doménech I Muntaner.
