courtyard residence in Benimaclet

Arturo Sanz as Architects

Benimaclet was an orchard town, an island in a sea of fields furrowed by ditches. With the growth of the city of Valencia the island was absorbed to become a neighborhood, and inevitably, an anomaly within the urban fabric. And in this condition it resists, increasingly gripped by the city.


The Ricart House is built on a plot located in the Historic Center of the neighborhood, and its vocation is to reinforce the typological characteristics of traditional buildings where the courtyards, even of small size, become the center of the house.


This house is organized around two courtyards: the first, in the transition between living room and kitchen-dining room, is open to the sun and contains an olive tree, the second, with a more private character, is a protected patio with shade vegetation.
