A-cero presents one of its last projects in single family houses in Marbella. The property is placed on the outskirts of Puerto Banús, in one of the most famous and exclusive developments in the Sun Coast. This development is located on one side of a mountain but very close to the coast, with plenty of Mediterranean vegetation.
The plot where the project is located has a notorious slope that goes down to the South from the street access. This fact would determinate the design to adapt the house to the environment and achieve excellent views of the Mediterranean Sea.
The floor is rectangular and places the most common space in the south to enjoy the scenery. This is where the plot is open to the outside world. The front of the north is the place to enter the house. from the architectural point of view, it is more sober and powerful. the wall and plan are cut crosswise. There is a geometric path covered with a layer of water that enters the main door. These windows are a minor factor in housing aesthetics, but they are important for corridors, dealers or public spaces.
All public and private guest rooms are located in the back of the house, on the porch of the gate, swimming pool, garden and tennis court. In this part of the house, facing south, the black glass window is larger, which can connect the outside with the inside, just like a large room hidden automatically in the living room. In architecture, the largest part is on the large porch of the main bedroom on the first floor. Inside, the house is spacious and is all shaped by natural light.
The property is developed at three levels:
The ground floor is the most common space, including living room, kitchen, restaurant, laundry room and a small service room. The second floor is the most private place, where we can find a bedroom and a small office. The first floor is also a leisure area, with spa, internal swimming pool, gymnasium and garage. The large central courtyard, which expresses the core of the house, illuminates this floor of the house.
