“The project provides order to all outdoor spaces on the plot, taking advantage of the steep slope.”

This is a single-family summer and weekend house for a large family, situated in the middle of a hillside in the Torre Bellver urbanisation, with magnificent views over the sea, and an optimal south-east orientation. The plot is terraced onto various horizontal platforms that rise from house level, where the main terrace and the pool are set, functioning as a horizon over the sea. The house and its terraces form diverse volumes that create a new artificial topography on the hillside in which they are implanted.

 

The development programme for the house required one single floor, practically, with the first floor only being created as a guest area and study room, forming on the one hand a rich interior space of double height in the lounge, and on the other, helping to configure the external volumetrics, articulated around the volumes into which the main floor was fragmented. It has an extensive layout comprising lounge, dining room, kitchen-office with laundry, pantry and outdoor terrace with barbecue. The other volume contains bedrooms and bathrooms for the children and, at the far end, the couples’ suite, with dressing room and bathroom.

 

The basement is organised into an open area which is more public in nature, leading to the main entrance hall to the lounge area, and to another closed area where service and meter rooms are located.
