This house is limited by having only one street-facing façade and by its close proximity to neighbours. The exterior of the building contrasts with its interior. The façade is subtle and designed to blend in with its surroundings, drawing minimal attention, with a focus instead on the interior, where private barriers are completely stripped away, revealing the inner confines of the house.
The reduced and at the same time elaborate nature of the house is a reflection of the client’s character.
The entrance sequence starts with the ramp leading into the raised central courtyard garden, maximising privacy towards the busy street. The interior layout enables an outward, flowing expansion, with transparency opening up views from one end of the site to the other and through multiple levels, without being exposed to the street. Privacy is experienced not only on the raised ground level, but also on the second floor where a big covered terrace emerges from the main façade, elevated so you can enjoy sea views in the shelter of shade, surrounded by lush vegetation.
