INHABITAT STUDY HOUSE 06
A perfect retreat to escape the hustle and bustle of modern-day stresses.
Surrounded by pine trees with the Mediterranean Sea as a reference point… this combination of natural elements is possible in project ISH06: a practical house, integrated into the environment, which marries the native vegetation with panoramic views of the sea.
Distributed on two levels, the open plan architecture integrates the generous living space seamlessly amidst the natural greenery and the contours of the surrounding hillside. The ingenious design takes advantage of the native flora to protect the home from the elements while maximizing on the breath-taking views.
The house is set like a huge grey concrete beam, perforated via the access and arranged in a longitudinal sense. The top floor accommodates the sleeping area and carport, whilst the main floor boasts the abundant dining, living and kitchen area. From here, via the large French windows, we have access to the terrace and swimming area. The beam rests to the south of the outdoor area on a single pillar, housing the outdoor entertainment area, with a shaded terrace for outdoor dining, a barbecue and shower room.
Exquisitely clean and uniform shapes, impeccable and striking materials, large double-glazed bay windows which illuminate the interior while maintaining privacy, the clever use of wood to infuse the interior with warmth, and the exposed construction elements that flow through spaces and yet become the framework for a porch, landing or other feature.
This is a celebration of inspirational architecture that seems to effortlessly create a comfortable, captivating and truly special home.
Contrasting with the exterior appearance of clear simple volumes, the interior hides a great spatial diversity: double height ceilings, diagonal relationship of different spaces at different heights … all accompanied by a meditated use of light.
