Casa Ter

Mesura
Baix Empordà, Spain

The house designed by studio Mesura in the Baix Empordà is a markedly horizontal construction that exudes a Mediterranean essence.

The project is based on three premises: to have a minimal visual impact on the existing topography, to respect plantlife, and to avoid a visual confrontation with the nearby constructions. The house rests on an elongated terrace that pierces the L-shaped volume, in the process forming a semi-outdoor space and structuring a liturgical promenade that culminates in a pool from which to contemplate the landscape.

The horizontal character of the composition is unaltered by the addition of an upper-level bedroom, thanks to its being covered with a Catalan vault of clear references to architectures of the ‘comarca,’ another allusion to which are the loadbearing walls clad in a mortar prepared with pebbles from the nearby river Ter and earthy ceramic pieces from La Bisbal, a local industry of great tradition.
