The X House is located on the upper part of a hill in Cabrils, in the outskirts of Barcelona and is a residential project developed by Cadaval & Solà-Morales Studio whose objective is to create intelligent design solutions at many different scales, from large projects to small buildings.

The unique form of the project is not an a priori, but an effort to give a unitary response that satisfies each of the questions rose up in the design process and is the result of a long work of search of individual answers to each of those challenges. The X House is also a constructive exploration of a technique regularly used for the infrastructural construction such as bridges and tunnels, here developed to meet the architectural scale, aiming to incorporate efficiency.

Moreover the project of the X House uses form to qualify spaces of very different nature and provide them with an individual character, always incorporating landscape as a main actor. Beyond the effective spatial arrangement at the front of the house, the views are the protagonist in each space. The image of the sea is always present when observing the mountain, and the mountain appears as a reflection when looking at the sea: a perceptive quality that enriches the experience of the house.
