Located in the Catalan countryside, the Retina House is designed to compliment the landscape and act as a rural refuge for its owners. The architecture studio behind the project — local company Arnau Estudi D’Arquitectura — designed the house to reflect the surrounding area, including a specially built meadow that surrounds the house.

Functional spaces, such as the garage or the walkway, combine to form a flat surface which acts as a base for a concrete block. This block is the main space of the house, and is made of up of one single open-plan space encompassing a living, dining and resting room. The Retina House also features a small swimming pool and large wooden blinds that open to give a sweeping view across the Santa Pau landscape. The building is designed to look like it is perching on the edge of the hill, with the architects explaining that it is “like an owl, ready to take flight.”
