The house is situated in a coast location, at Benicassim (Castellon), in Spain.
It is an isolated construction with its main elevation to East and an important open large garden area in front of this facade.
The project includes elements from the language and scale of typical single houses in spanish east; from the Mediterranean and white constructions in hot climates, the simplicity, rationality and good functionality are the main criteria in this architectural design
The building has an exterior finished with smooth texture and white flexible stucco-Cotegran Parex. This new material has a technology that repels water, is breathable and does not need any cut.
The holes for windows and doors have been solved with sliding wooden slats systems to control the sunlight. Then, the facades are designed in two colors and textures.
The steel columns have been left as seen through an oxide paint treatment.
The roof is flat and the raining water goes inside, so that the slabs at fly are still with minimum thickness and water drainage will not create stains on the white facade
It was planned a ground floor with all living program. The underground and first floors were for different uses.
The underground contains a two-car garag, a toilette and two storage room. It also has an art workspace, for painting and sculpture, which fills the artistic needs of the owner.
The walls and floor coverings have been treated in a more industrial way: concrete flooring is finished with a paint resin and concrete walls are seen, with transparent protection paint
The ground floor is distributed with a kitchen, utility, guest toilet, living-room and office, with a restricted zone that contains the private (night) area, two bedrooms with shared bathroom and master bedroom with bathroom. This plant is on two levels to differentiate the living room and covered terrace from the other uses, getting more height in these parts
The first floor has a room ready for recreation and games, multi-purpose, supplemented by an auxiliary bedroom and bathroom .
