Single Project

Car collector’s House

Year: 2015

Location: Emporda

Category: Residential

The project consists of a residence for a car collector overlooking the  lake and the snow-capped Pyrennes to the West. The site has one of four water courses that emerge from the lake to feed the Ter River downstream from the town centre. The three storey structure has interlocking volumes that provide vistas through the house, its surrounding garden and beyond to the lake.

Our concept maximises the privileged views over the lake while maintaining privacy for everyday activities such as cooking, dining and entertaining. There is an extensive garage for the growing collection which features a hydraulic platform for car display at the main ground floor level. There are also workshop spaces, a screening room/ lounge as well as a separate guest apartment.
