In a region like Catalonia, where the weather tends to fluctuate between nice and beautiful, residents look to spend as much time outdoors as possible, and 'Calders House' is a home that lets its residents truly maximize their connection to the natural environment. The unique home concept is "wall-free", with rooms on both the ground and top floor that are completely open to the elements.

To be sure, Calders House isn't completely without any sort of barrier. The home's upper and lower floors are both surrounded by sliding glass panels, and these can be closed and covered with curtains should the residents want privacy. However, those panels also overlap with one another, which leaves the majority of the home covered by a roof and a roof alone.
