Mountain Home Ideas – Hillside Home in Barcelona

Casa 205 in Barcelona is an unusual mountain home idea by Spanish architecture firm H Arquitectes, created to minimize environmental impact while maximizing the striking surrounding nature views. The site’s steep incline sets the tone for this slope house, which hangs precariously off the hillside edge overlooking the forest and the mountains on the horizon. In keeping with the region’s rustic countryside flair, this timber house is clad in wood both inside and out. An airy softwood facade features pine woodwork and shutters covering large and many windows. Inside this minimalist home, prefabricated plywood panels finish the floors, walls and ceilings, resulting in a lightweight structure easily supported by the seemingly unsteady site. This thoughtful wood home design also serves as an eco sustainable feature by reducing materials, energy and emissions associated with home building. And once the home has served its purpose, the plywood is removable, recyclable and reusable elsewhere. H Arquitectes
