Hovering in BF House / OAB + ADI

I love, love… LOVE, this hovering BF House designed by OAB + ADI. I’m a big fan of Carlos Ferrater work in any case, but this one is almost exactly what I had in mind for my Hover Challenge entry (which I did not finish, and had larger scale of venue to it) and it is built for real and looks amazing. I’m very fond of the courtyard housing typology and there is so much to learn from Joan Guillamat’s Photos taken here… The play of light outside and within the courtyard. The relation between the built house and the garden it floats on top of. The materials under the light… Enjoy this one!
