  1. Joseba and María are a very special partner. They have marked the character of the house. He is a renowned painter (www.sanchezzabaleta.com) who comes from Basque country to Gaucin attracted by the position and the views of the city. He needed a place to work and looked for an architect who understood his ideas of the lights and the space. The work developed shared the client and the architect ideas

2.                The geographic  situation is very important too. Gaucin is one of the most singular villages in the Ronda mountain area. The Town is like a balcony looking at the Strait of Gibraltar and Africa. Its privileged situation gives to Gaucin a amazing weather in addition to the views. The Villa is configurated by narrows  streets and white Walls. Our idea is to play with white faces and shadows to be integrated with the surroundings

3.                The plot position is in the highest area of the village and its link with the views and the landscape will be decisive in the concept of the form of the house: a white prism sculpted in the rock to hold a painting  studio and a dwelling

The painting studio, sited in the ground floor, has double height  to allow paint  large format pictures. The control of the natural light, thanks to a patio drilled in the stone, is other requirement.

You can go  to the roof trought a footbridge sited in the backyard garden . This area is like a white oasis, where the swiming pool , the Infinity views and the sky allow you to dream.

Finally is very important to highlight the work to integrate the project in the nearest surroundings. We have tried to not design anything new, we have just used the tradition, the light and the shadows
