Blur the boundaries; play with closed and open spaces. This was the proposal to build a plot with an exceptional location and impressive views. The resulting project is a dialogue between the building and the landscape. On this basis, the house takes inside floors and walls typical of the exteriors of the area; That is why it is open and draws angles so that the view of the sea penetrates the house. The Mediterranean is integrated into the daily life of the family that inhabits this home.
The interior garden of this house is a perfect oasis. Water, vegetation and light combine in it to create a feeling of calm, privacy and privilege which is extended to the rest of the house. The effect produced in the garden is echoed thanks to the presence of generously-sized flown porches that open onto this space and create continuity between the interior and the exterior, isolating it from its surroundings. It does not matter then that, in certain areas, the surroundings are aggressive from the urban point of view: behind the door you will find the tranquility of your own Eden.
Three vibrant and harmonious volumes that flow into each other; a game of composition generates different perspectives in the garden; materials that set the colour palette of stone and white; and a layout staggered over different levels to fluently and efficiently communicate the diverse uses. That is how we created this project for a musician who wanted an inspiring home complete with recording studio. Pure rhythm.
The recording studio is situated in one of the blocks, an impressive six-metre high cube that only opens onto the garden. On the opposite side is the more intimate area, and, connecting the two, we have the central block which comprises the thoroughfare and common area.
A grand, sculptured beam runs through the home and frames the scenery. This structural element is the aesthetic key to making this project possible, inspired by nature, it draws the surroundings in and captures your attention.
Inspiration for this project was born directly from the surroundings, close to the sea. From this, we see the aesthetic approach, great flights that unfold towards the horizon and high, glass spaces seeking to defy gravity. Each of the elements speaks of the privilege of infinity.
The beam that envelopes the building is the resource that makes all of this possible and furthermore, one that makes the domestic areas appear on a familiar scale despite their grand dimensions. It also becomes a frame that, as Ortega and Gasset said, draws in the gaze to pour it into the painting, which is, in itself, infinity.
