The idea was to maximize sea views and natural light, while providing proper shade to exterior spaces, organizing the program around courtyards and detaching some of its parts from the ground plane, allowing those views to penetrate deeper into the plot. A floating volume containing the two main bedrooms over an exterior patio and pool, allows the visual and spatial continuity, achieved through the transparency of the glazed Living/Dining Rooms, to the patio and beyond. Complementing the exterior space, is a roofscape with panoramic views across the site, accessible trough a spiral stairca.
