Text description provided by the architects. THE PROJECT

Our top priority was to keep the spirit of the existing house, which was more than 20 years old and was designed in an exaggerated way. It had ample passages, oversized bathrooms and lacked many basic spaces for a beach house of its size. The project has an air of minimalism combined with classic elements of a rustic beach house that give a sense of harmony and peace to every environment.


We call the double height space "the soul of the house". It recognizes the pre-existent structure and serves as an organizing element and spacial connector of all common areas.

The false ceiling cane plant generates a welcome shade throughout the day. At night the indirect lighting details scattered throughout the house enhance this natural element as “mother” of the project.

The “live facade made with sliding blinds that move across the front allows you to create shadows where they are required. When not in use they rest in front of the columns generating an antigravitational effect that gives you the feeling that the roof floats with no supports.

The house, which originally had only one story, now has two storys and has won 2 extra rooms, a TV room, a bar, a BBQ bar, a pool and a large family terrace to have lunch and rest overlooking the sea.
