Although site context is often presented as a planar parameter, Spanish architecture studio RipollTizon demonstrates a sectional awareness of the urban fabric. Ferriol House, situated on a residential street in Mallorca, Spain, responds to the elevations of its neighboring houses and the rise of the street. The interior of the house features a split-level on the first floor to reflect the site, and the orthogonal volumes of building intersect to build a spatial collage. Glass banisters the staircases and interior balconies, in addition to the white and natural finishes, help create unity within the space that is characterized by the unconventional massing, which is also revealed by the mélange of wooden shutters and fenestration.
