a house with own name
Imab One is the latest proposal of the study. The most special project made to date. The first Imab house in the Maresme. We are especially excited because most of the team members reside in the area.
We can affirm from our own knowledge that we live well here. International clients know us by our microclimate, the famous climate of mild temperatures that we only find in Maresme. Once you try it, you cannot escape.
Josep, the architect in charge of the project, proposes a base of extreme quality with a completely customizable interior layout.
We will make an exclusive and unique design for its new owners. The only thing that will be glimpsed with the rest of Imab houses built in other locations is the team’s predilection for the noble materials and elegant details chosen in all their projects.
This detached house is going to be built on a practically flat plot of almost 700m2, facing east, in a dominant position on Premià de Dalt and with panoramic views over the village, with the Mediterranean Sea in the background, spectacular.
In order to get the most out of the land, an interior layout is proposed in 3 unique levels.
The study proposes a logical and functional housing of 443m2 built:
– The upper floor, of almost 165m2, gives access to the house. It comprises two double bedrooms, a bathroom, a suite with dressing room and a parking area with storage room.
– The main floor, open to the sea, of 190.74m2, will go to a day area and composed of kitchen and dining room with direct access to the pool, a double room with dressing room and a bathroom. On this floor we also find a study, service room and a bathroom.
– The lower floor, 87.77m2, is intended as a leisure area: a multipurpose room with bathroom and direct access to the lower garden, with panoramic views of the sea.
The outdoor areas are proposed as leisure spaces for relaxation and composed of large terraces easily accessible, overflowing pool of 13.2x6m2 and 2 independent garden areas with easy maintenance Mediterranean landscaping.
From the base proposed by the study, we will begin to work on the personalization of the home.
After analysing their needs through several interviews with Josep, the architect nicknamed “El Sastre” by his clients, we will present the final proposal. A proposal based on all your requirements and that we will combine with the experience of the Imab team in the construction of quality custom homes.
We are before the beginning of the materialization of the house of your dreams.
See in this section the latest houses delivered by the studio, all of them tailored to their new owners.
IMPLementation of the housing according to the evironment
The chosen site complies with the four major parameters that Imab requests when considering the acquisition of land to build a quality home: orientation, topography, views and accessibility.
In this case, the South orientation is in the direction of the view and the slight slope of the terrain also goes down in a north-south direction. On the other hand, access to the house from Calle de la Cisa takes place through the North façade. This allows to leave both the accesses and the garage in the back, which provides excellent privacy to the rest of the house.
Thus, the implementation of the house becomes a balance between the top and bottom of the plot to adapt the design to the geometry of the site, to get construction and natural terrain speak the same language.
As for the position, the house is totally oriented to the south, to ensure optimum sunlight. Based on horizontal protection eaves, combined with motorized external blinds, the building accurately controls the solar incidence in relation to the weather station. During the summer, the Sun rotates very high and the geometry of the design prevents it from entering the house. On the contrary, during the winter, when the Sun moves to much lower height, the project receives a direct solar incidence that allows a natural heating of the house. Especially in our latitudes, we must take special care with the east and west orientation. Especially the latter, since in summer periods it affects very horizontally. If you do not protect the design against it, you can overheat the interior dependencies excessively during the summer.
Taking into account all these parameters and adding the geometry of the place, as well as the most attractive visuals, the house is projected with the North façade practically blind, to minimize the thermal losses. The east façade is closed to give the house a certain privacy in front of the neighboring buildings and to open the house to the greater orientation, being this the South-West. In this way, the entire South façade is projected to the outside through large openings. As we approach the west orientation, the openings are decreasing in more measured measures to control with greater precision the aforementioned parameters.
Right at the most suggestive point of the house, for views and orientation, the southwest corner, the spectacular infinity pool is placed.
NICE OUT, EFFICIENT INSIDE
Of course, energy rating «A».
Technological houses full of comfort. Systems such as air conditioning or hot water by high performance aerothermy, intelligent air renewal, climate channel that provides both ventilation and air conditioning, including the Oxygen. Low-H2O radiators, CO2 control in each room, “Fancoil Brisa”, which will produce heat or cold for an optimal temperature or Strada type heat emitters of the JAGA brand, among other technologies that are detailed in the Facilities section.
A HOUSE THAT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD
Para la Imab One, se plante
For Imab One, the use of natural materials that avoid CO2 emissions in its industrialization process is considered. Wood is a clear example of our philosophy. For each tree that is used to provide us with the raw material (beams, pillars, insulation, cladding, pavements, etc.), five new ones are planted. This is guaranteed by our main supplier, the leading German company in the Binderholtz wood construction sector.
We also avoid the appearance of electromagnetic fields produced by electrical installations.
In addition, for the healthiness of the house, we will use cutting-edge high-performance technology, such as that provided by the air renewal machines with Jagal brand enthalpy recuperator. This system makes it possible for the house to be permanently ventilated and at the same time free of suspended particles such as mites.
