“A beach, the sea, the horizon, nothing else”
The opportunity to work on a house in a special location, facing the sea, is not possible without a thorough assessment of the design of its geographical position, the current conditions of the building, and the wishes of client, which determine the objectives to be achieved and the development of the design.
The intervention, though limited to the first floor and terrace, allows through the creation of large windows with minimal windows frame, to expand to the maximum the view towards the sea.
On the front side we have a system of sliding panels in aluminum, to shade and protect from the surrounding buildings.
The terrace becomes the heart of the house, to be closely related to the house, including the possible redefinition of the stair to create a visual and spatial relationship with the interior spaces.
On the terrace we propose the implementation of an infinity pool, to give visual continuity between the edge of the water and the sea horizon.
The interiors are optimized according of the client functional needs, with spaces designed carefully with the various details relating to all components of the dwelling.
