A rare discovery in Spain’s Galician hills remains, to this day, a paragon of modernist architecture.

Casa Albalat resides in the northwest corner of Spain, a region famous for its rugged coastlines and rolling green hills. In the 1970s, when the home was built, architectural expression in Galicia and other parts of Spain was hindered under the Francoist dictatorship.

The late architect Andres Albalat resisted the status quo by designing what was, at the time, a very rare piece of architecture. Andres’ resolve certainly garnered attention then; fast forward 40 years, and his creation is a symbol of the modernist movement and its lasting effects on the design world.
