Modern Alternative

Minimalist residence

The challenge
Create a quiet rest area with some nice sightlines, with  good ventilation and natural lighting in all rooms while working with a  large kitchen, master bedroom downstairs, and a spacious social area.

We created an “L” shape with the social area at  double height opposite the master bedroom. The central area includes the terrace and a corridor that links the kitchen and study with other areas. The stairs in turn provide communication with the upper floor where two bedrooms and living area are located.

Block walls, beam and vault ceilings with double height spaces generate very fresh breezes. Windows face the prevailing winds, and are closed towards the west. Stone sinks.
