Brick Vault House

Space Popular collaborates with Estudio Alberto Burgos and Javier Cortinal Maruenda to create a housing prototype in Valencia, Spain. Situated on a sloped site, the three-story dwelling is defined by a green steel frame. A series of 12-foot white cubes are placed in the grid to create interior spaces. While the exterior consists of clean, geometric lines, the inside of each box is topped with a curved brick ceiling also know as Guastavino vaults. Living spaces are open and organized around a central staircase, eliminating the need for unnecessary corridors. Leaving voids in the framework creates a series of sheltered patios and terraces that expand the interior outdoors. Each house can be constructed without the use of cranes or scaffolding for easy reproduction while its modular design allows for individual customizations.
