Project • By Alberich-Rodríguez ArquitectosPrivate Houses


This "barn" (future studio) constitutes the first phase of a project that will be completed with the main house annexed construction. The large plot will also include a rail wagon putted up as a guest room.     The final geometric form of this shed is the result of previous studies on some archetypal typological variants of barns, constructions historically conceived for storage used in rural settings, and its new interpretation as a contemporary domestic-industrial space. Finally, the solution of a compact volume with a rectangular plan with a gable roof in its longitudinal direction is adopted. Imagen Subliminal Imagen Subliminal Imag... More

Daisen Work Hut

Daisen - Work Hut This project is the administration building for a small construction firm fromTottori, a nearby small city.  In the midst of the recent pandemic, the firm opted to relocate their office to a nearby rural area.  The new location is abundant in flora and fauna, with small scale agricultural buildings and a vista dominated by the nearby extinct volcano Mt Daisen. The firm hoped that this setting would provide an escape from the dreariness of city lockdown for themselves and their team. In the manner of a terminus or infrastructural building, the Work Hut stands alone in its context; a carpark in a village amongst rice paddies.  Like the nearby barns, the Work Hut is activated at the start of the day, with the...

Hourré farm house

We fell in love in Labastide Villefranche, at the outskirts of the french Basque country. With an old farm, a collapsing vernacular agricultural building.  From outside, the house looked like any farm house in the Basque Country, a massive yet unpretentious architecture. When we first opened its main door, we were expecting to come across the usual dark and damp central space called ”Ezkatz”. The roof had collapsed and pulled the upper floor with it, turning the house into a forest which main room had become a clearing. "Let’s not change a thing" we thought. MANIFESTO FOR A LIVING HOUSEIn many ways, Hourré epitomises our approach of space, landscape, ways of living and sense of freedom. Moreover it stresses t... More

Office Brabant

The design intent for this barn-like structure was inspired by farms in the surrounding area to create a one-story office that breathes a homely, residential feel. The square-shaped layout encloses a perfectly symmetrical patio with a tranquil water feature and provides significant privacy. Extending from the water feature, a protruding window provides a glimpse into the gym and showcases the wonderful views in front of the building.

The materialization of the interior has been consistently implemented and uses large amounts of natural stone. This is displayed in all washbasins, pantries, the fireplace and flooring that alternates a lig... More

Single family house in Kobylany, PL

The house was designed on the southern slopes of the Upland near Krakow. This area is included in the area of ​​the Landscape Park. The context of charming and natural landscape values ​​has become the background for the project. The plot has a trapezoidal shape and a topography of very different heights.

Red Barn

Located on a coastal Connecticut estate, the Red Barn houses space for an artist on the first floor (a studio and workshop) as well as modern living accommodations on the second floor (a bedroom, bathroom, living and dining areas). Programmatic flexibility is a major component of the Barn’s design, as the first floor is highly reconfigurable. In stark counterpoint to the traditionalism of the estate, the building houses its functions in minimalist, graphic efficiency as it reinterprets a common New England building form. A continuous rainscreen encloses the entire profile of the dwelling and seamlessly blends a large foldaway door that allows access to the expansive space below. More

Santa Ynez Barn

The rehabilitated barn was adorned with a translucent structural composite that allows the outdoor light into the home and creates an illuminating, almost lantern-like effect at night. The home was built to accommodate long stays from guests including the home owners’ children and grandchildren and act as a “party house” that brought the outdoors in. This is well executed with the original structure of the barn with its large, sliding doors and hayloft. More

Saxum Vineyard Equipment Barn

Located in the Templeton Gap area of West Paso Robles, this simple agricultural storage structure rests at the toes of the 50 acre James Berry Vineyard.
