The private top floor holds two bedrooms and bathrooms that provide spectacular views of the Pyrenees and the countryside. An unassuming wooden staircase with glass railing divides the home into two identical halves and ushers in a sense of symmetry and curated elegance.
It is the top level though that is the real activity hub here as it contains everything from the master bedroom and kids’ bedrooms to the kitchen dining room and an open living space that offers wonderful views of the city landscape.
Pops of red and lovely lighting give the large living space a bright and open appearance while the kitchen and dining space doubles as a wonderful gathering area for the entire family. Bringing an aesthetic value and construction style from an era lost in time this Spanish home effortlessly bridges the past and the present!
Shaped by stunning mountains all around and defined by the unique lot on which it sits this in works within the existing limitations to make the most of both space and the views on offer. The sloped triangular lot the family residence sits on plays a major role in shaping its overall silhouette along with local construction guidelines that mandate the use of wood for at least 30 percent of the home’s surface area. Walking this architectural tightrope and delivering in style GCA Architects ensured that the dwelling did not compromise on unabated views even while offering adequate privacy to those inside.
Is one such delightful beachside family escape that seems both inviting and refined thanks to the striking fusion of locally sourced timber hardwood with modernity by Ola Studio.
