Casa Ugalde

Casa Ugalde is located in Caldes d’Estrac, a small town north of Barcelona. It is one of the first masterpieces by the modernist architect José Antonio Coderch, in collaboration with Manuel Valls.

It was commissioned in 1951 by a friend of Coderch, the industrial engineer Eustaquio Ugalde, who loved to take walks on the hillside where the house stands. In this idyllic setting, the Ugalde family wanted to build a house that would blend seamlessly into its natural surroundings; nestled in the lush Mediterranean pine forest, with a spectacular panoramic sea view. With this in mind, Coderch and Valls built a series of volumes that grow out of nature, absorbing the serpentine topography and looking out to the endless sea.


An irregular construction, open-plan and free-flowing; formed by unique spaces that transform with natural light, and merge into the forest that slopes down to the blue waters.

Local materials, natural fibres and light tones both in the furniture and in the selection of art and decorative elements. In line with the project's principles of sustainability, the Santa & Cole lamps create a succession of warm atmospheres, whether by the pool, on the idyllic porch or in the seclusion of the interior rooms. Timeless, quality pieces that promise to kindly illuminate every corner of this splendid place.
