We started the week in one of those houses that we all would like to have, with an ideal environment and wonderful decoration. Is about a house located in the heart of the Costa Brava with incredible views. The challenge of the construction consisted of fitting everything desired for the house with a volumetry in balance with the nature of the place. The study Dosarquitectes He proposed some cubes arranged in such a way that it seemed that they were random, like fallen from the sky in a game, but that they ultimately derive from the fan shape of the terrain itself.
These cubes have the same dimension of 7x7 meters, approximately, and remain completely open on the side of the sea view and the good solar orientation, in addition to being protected by a large hydraulic blind system. These cubes are mixed causing angular interstitial spaces. From the layout of these cubes on the upper floor, the guidelines of the rest of the building are developed.
The main ground floor places the most important pieces of use in Open connection with outdoor terraces, pool and garden. Three patios: one Arab, one oriental and one tropical help to improve the lighting and ventilation conditions. They also serve to distribute the uses of the different spaces: the guest apartment, the main entrance and the study, or the kitchen and main living area.
The lower floor in contact with the lawn garden with micro-dunes consists of the area dedicated to the Spa and Hammam and a rest area. An apartment is also separated for the usual service in this type of housing. Dosarquitectes study places special importance on compliance with principles of sustainable architecture, so, energy saving measures were taken both in the design of the house, as in the selection of materials.
As for the interior design, the general proposal starts from a pavement with a lot of character, a three-layer wooden floor of oak from the firm Bimbo. The walls decided to give a more neutral and clear tone with a lime stucco finish in a broken white color or with a lacquered wood cladding with integrated doors.
The lighting takes on special importance in this house, basically using decorative and technical lamps from the Italian house Flos. Some of the luminaires are integrated into the walls themselves. It was proposed that all the large openings in ￼fachada be bathed by a linear indirect light with LED strips.
The house has three Arclinea brand kitchens executed by Arclinea Barcelona: the main, the service and the apartment. The main kitchen of the house, is fully integrated into the daily use space and incorporates all the details of a kitchen for a house of these characteristics. Highlighting the greenish gray freckled paneling of the Lignum et Lapis model in the area of columns and service wall, which contrasts with the island in stainless steel Convivium model. The countertop of the island is also made of frosted stainless steel and incorporates three cooking plates, all of them Gaggenau.
The main support kitchen, where it is the water and washing area, is the matt white Convivium Professional model and is located in the most hidden rear part and in connection with one of the courtyards. The countertop of this kitchen and the wall cladding are Silestone White Gloss Zeus and the appliances are from the firms Neff and Gaggenau. Finally, the Convivium Elegant Color Lacquer Vinaccia model is present in the kitchen of the apartment.
On the other hand, the general furniture of the house for which Dosarquitectes has chosen are the hanging elements on the walls releasing the floor as much as possible. A type of fresh, more natural furniture for a modern coastal house, in clear contrast to the natural parquet. The outdoor pool is Infinity Pool type, and with retractable cover. Its access has been designed with wide beach-type steps to sit or stretch.
I see those windows and that harmony of the house with its exterior and what I think is that, if I could, I would move to a place like that right now. And what do you think about the house?
