House design description from architects
With a unique plot, due to its size, location and views, the owner could only dream for a relaxed and peaceful summer house. In order to satisfy his demand we decided enhance its views while protecting its outdoor areas.
The project consists of five blocks which contains a main block with a living and dining area with the best views to the sea and its swimming pool, which is completely protected from the wind placed in the center of the project. The other blocks contain a service area and other guest room blocks. This independence was crucial to make his guests get the feeling of being in alone in a hotel.
The gallerias that surround these concrete blocks end up creating the idea of outdoor rooms and a fluid transition between the house exterior and interior design with a fantastic panoramic view.
The materials used are concrete, wood, iron and glass.
