Hofmann House, Rocafort

Fran Silvestre Arquitectos 

Rocafort, a municipality in Horta Nord, a comarca of the Valencian community, is the location of this house whose distinguishing feature is a T-shaped roof. For this work the Valencia practice of Fran Silvestre and Andrés Alfaro Hofmann has been named the 2020 winner in the Architecture section of the German Design Awards, given yearly by the German Design Council. The project seeks to obtain the best vistas of the surroundings with a passable roof that serves as a viewing deck. The two levels of the 350-square-meter residence adapt to the sloping terrain, with a half-buried floor containing a living room, a bathroom, three bedrooms, and a gym.
