Arquitectos: Atrium House

Godella, Spain


The design for the 8,246 sf Atrium House takes a fresh look at 20th century modernism from the courtyard house of Mies van der Rohe of the 1920's and '30s to the case study Houses in Las Angeles in the 1950's and 60's.

The contiuous 57-foot-long floor to cealing glass opens up to the landscape and creates an open plan. The uniteruped surfaces then focus the attention to the furnishing, people and outdoor views.
