Last Saturday I joined an excursion that Openhouse had organised to visit Casa La Ricarda, a gem of mid twentieth century architecture just a few kilometers from Barcelona’s city centre. I took lots of pictures, too many to share with you in one post, so today I’ll be showing you those that I took of Casa La Ricarda – the outside.
Starting with a shot of the reeds and rushes (above) on the way to this beautiful house, which is located right by Barcelona’s airport, in a gorgeous beach-side setting among pines that the family planted at the beginning of the twentieth century to protect the dune landscape that made up a large part of the family’s land. And followed by a slideshow of the exterior of the house and its grounds. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
Wonderful, isn’t it? A simple module repeated to make up a long stretch to parallel the sea shore and perpendicular wings to house the bedrooms for both the family and staff, the separate module for the owners, as well as the ample garage. I’ll be sharing images of the inside with you later this week, so be sure to come and check in at the Cute Suite blog!
