(145) HOUSE IN CADIZ. 2014

(145) HOUSE IN CADIZ. 2014

On a steep slope overlooking Los Alemanes beach, the 400 square meter house aims to adapt itself to the terrain through a series of horizontal platforms, protected from the wind by thick concrete pillars that frame Mediterranean-like spaces. The lowest platform, at street level, houses the parking and the service areas of the building. On the top floor boasts the best views of the ocean and is where the large living area, the kitchen and the main bedroom are found. The rest of the living spaces are located inside the excavated hillside. The pool is found on the lower platform, surrounded by thick columns.
