The House was completed in 2009, with great attention to details and materials, for a family that fell in love with the soothing feeling of peace and the light of this place. It has featured in fashion shoots, furniture and decoration catalogues. The purity of the space is the result of a clear desire to use only a few natural materials throughout the house. The floors are laid through and through only with large squares of Benissalem stones which are found as well in the bathroom and the Italian walk in showers. All internal walls and high ceilings are plastered and painted in white.
The high volumes and the bespoke floor to ceiling doors and sliding windows hiding into the walls, confer a sense of fluidity bridging the outside with the inside. The lush Mediterranean garden can be admired from all angles and offers natural shadow for lunches al fresco, to relax care free, nestled in a hammock or comfortably lying on wooden deck chairs, Indian day bed or a sofa.
The garden rewards you throughout the years with a range of seasonal fruits and vegetables as well as cooking herbs. The gifts of nature find their ways into the modern open plan kitchen and its induction cooking island leading onto a pergola, showcasing a large built-in barbacoa and outside dinning area overlooking the 16 meters long pool. Enjoy a game of petanque on the purpose built pista, the sunset and a few drinks lounging on a sofa.
