The architects at Fran Silvestre Arquitectos have designed a house integrated into the environment with landscape of unique beauty. Its design is just as idyllic as its setting. This true modern Spanish house is located in Ayora, a small Spanish town outside Valencia, has a clean, contemporary silhouette, but we would never call it “simple.”
Modern Spanish house
The slope house is a white concrete monolith that clings to its mountain surroundings, cliffs topped by a ruined castle. The mountain is covered by a blanket housing through a system of aggregation by simple juxtaposition of pieces generated fragmented target tissue that adapts to the topography. The modern Spanish house is located in a beautiful landscape which is a result of a natural and evident growth. Thus the time constructively meet the requirements of the “new people.” The project respects the strategies of adaptation to the environment and materials away from the mimesis that would lead to misleading historicism.
Modern Spanish house – creative architecture
Highlighting the beautiful contrast between man and nature, towered up by sharp jagged cliffs, this polygonal building is fragmented, following the natural lay of the land, and punctuated by deep window wells and doorways, and has stylishly asymmetrical rooms. The slightly skewed walls give the house its visual interest while the surroundings feature rural buildings that contrast sharply with the strictly geometric residence. The architects suggest that any attempt to have the house imitate or approximate its surroundings would would have resulted in a misleading statement. The entire home is suffused with natural daylight as the interior thrives on the high ceilings and skylights. There is a staircase that leads up through the two floors to the roof top. The northern part of the roof terrace cuts into the lower slope of the cliffs while the façade has a modern white palette and open-concept layout.
