Casa Ter

Casa Ter by Mesura Architects surges from a process of truly listing to the cultural and natural environment it inhabits. The home creates a personal sense of place, in close contact with everything it’s surrounded by.

Date: 2020

Made by:

Location: Baix Emporda, Catalonia, Spain

Casa Ter is located in Baix Empordà, an area that functions as an intersection between three natural landscapes: sea, mountain, and field. In order to make this context tangible to its users, the home is made out of two volumes which create three different spaces, each branching out towards one of the surrounding landscapes, touching as little of the natural surroundings as possible.

Following the local construction traditions of the region, the walls of Casa Ter are composed of KM0 materials, using a mix of concrete and stones from the local river Ter with ceramics, a material with a long cultural tradition in the neighbouring La Bisbal, where the material makes for one of the main economic activities.

The interior decoration has also been considered with natural materials such as ceramics by Valeria Vasi, nanimarquina rugs and Santa & Cole lamps.
