This property is probably nothing like you've ever seen in Spain before. Located in  Valencia, this housing prototype strives to combine sustainability and a modular system with the classic construction of Catalan vaults. The property is home to Guastavino vaults traditionally made with brick, in honour of the Spanish architect who introduced this unique arched ceiling technique in the USA.

The house is located in a sloped area and from the street it appears to have two storeys, when in fact it actually has three, something that becomes apparent by following a set of stairs down the sloped site to home's entrance. The construction process did not involve any concrete, a measure employed to reduce the carbon footprint of the property, and its structure is made from steel and brick that make the house look like it is made up of a series of cubes. The British architectural firm Space Popular joined forces with local architects Alberto Burgos and Javier Cortina Maruenda on this project.

The property has a total of 235m2 and divided into three floors, combining several terraces with a large interior. On the first floor, a bedroom and a large common area overlook the pool and on the second floor you can find the kitchen and the living room, while the third floor is home to more private areas with additional bedrooms and bathrooms. Let's have a look around!
