“Can Canyís” is a house located on a steep and rocky hillside covered in the local, wild vegetation, from which you can enjoy a magnificent view of Canyamel Bay. A sequence of stone platforms built on the abrupt site makes it possible to settle the four stacked boxes that accommodate the main living spaces and frame four different patches of the Mediterranean Sea. Enclosured with glass surfaces, the interstitial spaces between the rectangular prisms and the stone podiums have been treated with the same intensity as the cuboids and dilute the limits between interior and exterior space.
