This house in the mountains, designed by the architect Joan Anguita, brings all the glamour of Los Angeles to Barcelona. Partially suspended above the terrain, it is the dream home of a young businessman who loves collecting cars and organizing gatherings for his friends.

The four-storey structure blends into its environment by means of a transparent glass façade that provides spectacular views of the city and the Mediterranean Sea beyond.

The main body of the house comprises the ground floor and the first floor, which is reserved for social activities. The ground floor displays the owner’s private car collection, while the first floor contains the kitchen, dining room, sitting room and library.

A freight elevator runs all the way up the house, from the display area to the top floor, which is devoted to the everyday living spaces. This transparent elevator makes it possible to move vehicles from one level to another or put them on show in different spaces.
