This beautiful home was constructed in 1975 by Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill out of the ruins of an old country house. While the interior is a bit dated, the pavilions framed by dark grey earthenware are timelessly gorgeous.
The Family House at the Empordà is a complex of pavilions that are oriented around a central outdoor space that contains the swimming pool and the dining room. The complex sits atop a rectangular platform that is deliberately reminiscent of the stilobatos of a Greek temple as well as of Mies van del Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion. The main building is the owner’s three-floor residence. The remaining structures are the kitchen, and bedrooms for family and guests.
