Masía Lurdes Bergada

Christian Leibenger Amuser as Architects

The challenge of the project is to convert a farmhouse near Barcelona, with small and poorly lit areas, into the residence of the fashion designer Lurdes Bergada. The key point is to achieve in light and open space in a building that traditionally lacks them. We opted to generate an interior as smoothly as possible, in which spaces were constantly reported, without being scrambled. Like this we get full use of space, in which there are no unused rooms or forgotten corners. On the use of materials, we tried to limit the palette: on the one hand, white liming that covers the original body of the house, and on the other, cement render for the whole new part. In this way we can quickly differentiate the new from the existing one, which is “sewn” by the continuous wooden flooring. To ensure the entry of light, we practiced large openings on the facades East, South and West of the farmhouse, which can open completely, allowing an optimum relationship between interior and exterior. This relationship is screened in the south façade by a porch-gallery, which serves as a connection / protection between these two spaces.
