  • A beachfront house, opening the horizon

    The property located on a terrain with a steep slope is for a family that would go on weekends to spend the holidays to the beach.

    Located in a neighborhood where the constructions try to gain in height to get the best views and as a result, the horizon is hidden for passers-by, the project BLNDR proposes a house in 4 levels alternating built volumes and open levels for recreation. So it is through an open intermediate level allowing skyline views that the entrance to the house is proposed, this is the most social level of the house ideal for making parties, events or receiving friends without them entering the house.

    The project aims to delve into the possibilities between the public and the private, between intimacy and externality. Above all, public and private, not in the old day terms but addressing the public, street, views, etc. and its relation to privacy, to take over the horizon, the sea and marking a difference not only in terms of purchasing power but also to mark this portion of the horizon as mine.

    From the consideration on these issues is that the decision-making arises and organizes the house making every effort to socialize views and not monopolize the enjoyment of the sea and the distant horizon. This concern for the recovery of the horizon is also worked in the 2V House and the GRNT House; in all three projects, the role of the architect is decisive for the proposed architecture to generate a positive impact not only on the client but also on the environment.
