This contemporary home is an example of a structure that respects the natural terrain.
Acantillado House by Fran Silvestre Architects:
The design objective is to build ‘a house in the air, walk on water’. The structure looks calmly to the Mediterranean Sea.
The house has a pool and a garden in the basement.
Given the steep slope of the plot and the will to develop housing on one level. We opted for a three-dimensional displays and concrete slabs that adapts to the topography making the minimum armed topography suits doing the minimum possible earthwork. This monolithic structure anchored to the rock creates a horizontal platform, the dimension of access from the street, where the home is located. The pool area is a lower bound on a flat area exists on the lot. The concrete structure is thermally insulated on the outside with a smooth plaster of lime, white flexible and finish. The other materials, walls, pavements, gravel cover maintain the same color emphasizing the unitary character.
