The project is an energetically efficient and low cost single family house for a designer couple in Barcelona. The building consists of two elements, the steel / concrete ground floor level and a wooden prefabricated first floor. The elements are separated by a window, which also works as a barrier for the termites to access the wooden structure. Built according to platform technology, the wooden part of the building is very well insulated. To protect the wood from the Spanish sun, the wooden part of the building is painted in light grey. The building has a total gross floor area of 120 m².
