The main reason that unleashes any architectural proposal is the client. His needs and questions provide the project with some ideas that will be present in any space of the building.

RG House was built in order to solve the difficulties of a large family. Questions and needs arise from the way in which this large family should live together in yet to be defined space. The idea of a different common space (special and recognizable) as a complement of the rest of the modular units (bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen) that complete the program of the house prevails in the whole project.

This common space (living room, dining room, etc) is located in the center of the plot, surrounded by the garden. The functional parts of the house can be found at the bottom of the plot. The rationality and modulation of the bedrooms contrast with the central space: a special place where outer and inner spaces are melted and where the verticality is diluted by the shadow provided from a north skylight.

The introverted nature of the house, due to its location in an industrial estate, inspires the clean shapes arising from the border walls. The aim of hiding the windows emphasizes the fusion of the central space with the surrounding garden, courtyard and pool.
