Cadaval & Solà-Morales, Sunflower House in Puerto de la Selva (Girona)

Located in a choice spot of the Gerona coast, facing the Mediterranean Sea, the Sunflower House – a work of Eduardo Cadaval and Clara Solà-Morales – rises in the rocky landscape of the Cap de Creus, in the fishing town of Puerto de la Selva. The design breaks up the panoramic views into window sequences, and the dwelling itself, its 250 square meters, into cubes containing small rooms. Set onto the slope of the terrain, these cubes define the building’s perimeter, present blind facades towards the neighbors, and engage with the landscape directly. For optimal entrance of natural light, the house opens onto a rear courtyard, duly protected against the region’s tramuntana wind, which here blows at speeds reaching 180 kilometers per hour.
