INHABITAT STUDY HOUSE 07
Enjoying the Mediterranean climate with sea views … A house located in a strategic point. The distinctive colours of the native vegetation and the privileged views to the bright blue sea enrich the location enabling a quiet and integrated experience. With a solid exposed concrete roof, the house contrasts respectfully with the prominent natural environment. A pure transparent base that supports a large grey concrete structural cover generates different connections with its immediate environment.
As you walk through the different spaces in the house, you will recognise its uninterrupted and longitudinal layout. This configuration allows the accommodation to be organised from the public areas to the private rooms, overlooking the views that extend from the Cabo de Oro in Moraira to the Ifach Rock in Calpe, while protecting the exterior aesthetics with a vegetative cover and generating a permanent dialogue with the Mediterranean Sea.
The particularity of this project is that the exposed concrete roof rests on only a total of four metallic pillars placed in key points. The pure and structural geometry of the roof also serves as a transparent base that houses the day and night programs.
The predominant materials, which stand out for their nobility, sobriety and elegance, are the exposed concrete and the local dry-stone exterior walls, which provide warmth through the golden tones and textures, generating pleasant spaces inside the house and a resounding volume on the outside.
An unusual design based on the Neue Nationalgalerie modern art museum in Berlin, projected by the celebrated architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, considered to be one of the most important masters of modern architecture. His famous so-called mottos speak for themselves: ”Less is more” and “God is in the details” and can be easily perceived within Inhabitat Study House ISH07.
