INHABITAT STUDY HOUSE 09
A viewpoint overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the Ifach Rock … a house with unbeatable views and climate due to its exceptional location and orientation.
A concrete lookout leaning on the autochthonous dry stone … located in a privileged area of the Mediterranean coast, the house seeks respect for its natural environment through the use of concrete combined with local materials. A basement of stone walls which support the concrete box creates an allusion to the traditional stone margins that were used to terrace the agricultural lands of the region.
The house is arranged so that practically the whole program is developed in the concrete box on the first floor, a configuration that allows for a completely open plan ground floor, where the terraces and swimming pool are situated, adapting to the different levels of the plot and looking for the main views towards the Ifach Rock, while at the same time it provides the house with privacy. The stone walls that support the concrete box contribute to the configuration of the ground floor space creating patios and different environments.
In short, the idea of architecture expressed in this project not only distances itself from other constructions in the area in relation to its constructive solution but, also, the architectural language used is tremendously different. It is a modern project that refers in program, form, structure, construction and language to the identification of the clients’ requirements in a unitary way with a timeless building that will constitute their future home.
