Casa Ter by Barcelona based architecture firm Mesura is located in Atalia, Spain. The location of the house provides a secluded privacy in the middle of nature withinside fields and forest. Even the house burst into sight, the texture yields with the field as one especially with natural colors and raw material preferences. Also accommodating the house’s structure into the land supports the integrity. The land’s structure and nature has been protected as much as possible which also helps to keeping the Mediterranean ambiance. The house’s structure has been formed by two volumes and three different spaces.
The first volume where the pool is located leaps out with the usage of natural stones that gives the feeling of sea instead of a pool. This is also the part of the house where the greatest integration is thanks to how pool’s been designed and set in field. The half open space leading to pool at the center separates the kitchen and living room from each other while creates a transition between inside and outside but also provides a protected space to different weather conditions with large glazed doors. Minimalist approach they have while designing this area with only wooden materials and furniture provides the tranquility of Mediterranean atmosphere. The second volume is a L shaped living space where the windows have been positioned in order to having the day light and see the field’s panorama. The most outstanding feature of the house is the wooden ceiling that has been shaped as one of a kind and with well selected decorative objects the space turns out as a marvelous space. Beside from everything, crowning touch of the house is the Catalan vault of the master bedroom on the second floor. Mesura’s approach to Casa Ter Project proves that there are no limits to create such unique design.
