In response to a request from a Spanish photographer in constructing a home and workplace for him and his family, Tom Kundig of Seattle-based architecture and design firm has responded to this by combining a house with a studio called Studio Sitges. The house and studio are located just a stone throw's away from the Mediterranean Sea in the town of Sitges in North-eastern Spain, 30 minutes away from Barcelona.

The element that makes the house special is the entrance, where Kundig constructed a pivoting rusted steel door within another pivoting door to create either a small entrance or a large one. Inspired by the cement walls and tiled roofs of traditional Tuscan houses, Kundig transformed the facade into a wall of Corten steel and concrete.
