H Arquitectes has designed and built the 712 House on the outskirts of Barcelona, Spain. The unique, triangular shaped house is built with a double wall made of perforated bricks. The gap between the two walls provides natural ventilation and air circulation inside the structure. The house has three bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen/dining area and a study room cleverly arranged in the triangular space.

Here is a description from the architects, “The proposal wants to occupy all the buildable part of the parcel by means of a ground floor house, entailing a triangle shaped plan with each side parallel to its correspondent plot limit. This triangular geometry minimizes the distribution spaces (having only a central one), reduces the cost and allows a constant and homogeneous relation between both the inside and the outside.

Because of the ground level difference between site and street (the highest one), the triangular roof, almost an icon, becomes the fourth fa├žade of the house.

While designing and planning the project, the budget was cut by 65%. This fact strongly conditioned all the construction decisions: systems, materials, etc. By removing all the superfluous and unnecessary elements, the house was given both an inside and an outside which are extremely austere, powerful and very expressive.”
