House 1014 by H Architectes, in Granollers, Barcelona

A red brick wall spans the gap between two crumbling facades on a street in the centre of Granollers (Barcelona), hiding a home – House 1014, by H Arquitectes – with two courtyards and a central garden.

The property is set in the centre of a gully just 6.5 metres wide running the width of a block between existing properties.

Two brick patios bracket the family home, offering a sheltered transition area from street accesses on either side of the block, while a further garden splits the space into two distinct halves – one for more private domestic activities, and another for entertainment.

Retractable glass and metal roofs cover the patios, capturing heat in winter and providing shade in summer.

An original stone facade with ornamental window frames and an arched doorway was preserved by the architects to create a pedestrian entrance from a street on the other side of the block.
