Merge the building with the environment and let the mountain enter the home so that the whole family can live with it. That is the premise for this construction. For this reason, stone and wood are protagonists even on the façade. Just like its toasted colours, which are constantly reminiscent of the old holm oak that once populated the area. Outside, the rock of the mountain can be seen in gardens located at different heights and that makes the natural environment embrace the building.
The horizon is everything in this plot. It is a place dominated by horizontal lines with an extraordinary view over the Mediterranean. Therefore, the project developed for this location seeks the magic of weightlessness. To achieve this, the design contemplates two volumes superimposed and displaced from each other that leave the ground floor open and turn the upper area into a floating construction that looks into infinity and closes on the north facade. The use of glass, cantilevers and colors complete this poetic play of light and shadow, closed and open, matter and emptiness.
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.
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.
