About Casa Moulat

Casa Moulat: A Unique Blend of Natural and Artificial Landscape

Nestled within the Amanali Golf Club development, Casa Moulat serves as a remarkable testament to the innovative use of exposed concrete in architecture. This project harmoniously merges the building with its surrounding natural landscape, drawing a captivating contrast with the man-made golf course. It masterfully explores the intriguing duality of open and closed, interior and exterior spaces.

Rising from the Earth: The Foundation of Casa Moulat

The single-story dwelling gracefully rises from a stone plinth, forming a sturdy base of exposed concrete that extends up to the house’s floor level. This strategic positioning allows Casa Moulat to effortlessly adapt its interior spaces to the local topography, akin to a skirting board. The shifting heights reveal the foundation in an engaging and natural manner.

Unveiling the Private Spaces: The Concrete Volumes of Casa Moulat

Perched atop the foundation are two volumes of exposed, earth-toned concrete that house the private quarters of the residence. These volumes are skillfully bridged by two colossal concrete beams, which provide support to a large wooden roof adorned with an intricate openwork structure. The house’s main space is embraced by expansive windows that can be fully retracted, transforming the interior into a sheltered terrace. This seamless transition infuses an air of elegance and flexibility to the interior design of Casa Moulat.
