-ARENAL- DETACHED HOUSE

Architect : Orobitg – A&U, Construction area : 1.254  m², Project and construction: 2006/08

This high-standing house is located in a fantastic site with stunning views in  La Massana, Andorra.

Stability of back slope was achieved in temporary conditions tby an anchored micro-pile contiguous wall. Due to the existing soil characteristics (back-fills with sands and materials from nearby previous excavations), foundation were designed with pile caps and micro-piles . Self-compacting concrete was used in the construction of slabs.

The roof that partially covers the terrace was design in glue laminated timber and various strut&ties steelwork components allowed long cantilevers from the main concrete structure.
