Behind an eye-catching yellow steel façade, this house on the outskirts of Barcelona by local architecture firm MACH, honours the industrial with a sleek interior organised around a central core. Located just off of Gaudi’s famed Parc Güell, the structure shares little in common with the sprawling absurdist park bar and its penchant for a pop of colour.

What you see at Casa Collumpio tends to be what you get. Spread across three flexible and open floors, the architects looked to emphasise the building’s main construction elements. A sunken floor sits on a heavy plinth as the two upper levels are constructed from a lightweight steel frame that has been infilled with blockwork and plastered walls.

Inside, the concrete ground floor houses a bedroom, on the first floor you will find the living and kitchen while the second floor is currently the MACH studio. The spaces are circular around a central piece that functions as a bathroom and storage. The different pieces of furniture, some built-in, finish off the interior. The house has been designed to change as needed.

“The project emphasises the main construction elements in an open-plan home,” explain Laia Gelonch and Marc Subirana, MACH founders. “The house is thought to evolve together with its inhabitants.”

Steel and concrete furnishings add to the industrial feel seen throughout the residence, only emphasising the feeling of flexibility. This rawness in materiality is juxtaposed with the playfulness of the yellow facade and staircase.

Although a last minute decision, the bright facade pays homage to some of the British high-tech architecture greats of the late 20th century. Glimmers of the Eames House by Charles and Ray Eames, 22 Parkside by Richard Rogers and the unbuilt Yellow House by Peter and Alison Smithson can all be found here.
