The owners of this bright & comfortable holiday residence located on the Mediterranean coast decided to expand it with a fresh new extension. Once a fishermen village, this coastal town from Spain, Torre de la Horadada, has become a well-known tourist destination during summer holidays.
The former fishermen' dwellings became simple urbanized "beach houses" that show no signs of what they used to be.
The home's planning does not imply other architectural resources beyond the urban restraints regarding height, occupancy, and boundaries. The house's cover has a spontaneous and unique design. It has creatively expanded upon the aesthetic of the first floor, so the result is one of an out of control and no-turning-back eclecticism.
For this project, a volatile architecture has been suggested. The result has been integrated into the celestial scenery, which has eventually fused with the light-blue sky.
The simple and easy extension ensured an agile execution with a good interpretation. The finishes have been kept to an elemental level, so the costs are reduced. "In a nutshell, an architecture in line with our time and our resources." the architects added.
The extension is built with a metallic structure supported on the load-bearing walls of the house below and the SATE system is used in the façade, whose color is inspired by the wind power’s turbines. Pure lightness and a celestial look.
