BREEZE HOUSE

Fran Silvestre Architects as Architects

A reinterpretation of a modernist villa from the 20th century in the coastal area of Spain, the Breeze House takes the form of two volumes joined within a single floor. In this way the scale of the porch allows an adequate control of the sun intensity and the privacy is provided to the main room, maintaining the view of the garden. At night you can climb up to a spectacular terrace and enjoy the summer night. 


More from the Architects:


After a life in the center of Europe, a couple returns to the Mediterranean. Among their mere desires is the power to enjoy a place where they spent the summer during their childhood.


It reinterprets a villa of the last century that characterizes this coastal area on the beach of Castellon. The elements used in the neighboring architectures such as the latticework that constitute the fences, the porches are slightly shadow above the street level are updated in the proposal. The house is configured with two volumes that are joined in a single floor. In this way the scale of the porch allows an adequate control of the sun intensity and the privacy is provided to the main room, maintaining the view of the garden. The wet zones differentiate the day zone at night in this position is the staircase that allows you to climb a terrace where you can enjoy the summer evenings. A place from which you can see the sea you feel by the breeze.

The Breeze House located in Castellón also illustrates his holistic aesthetic approach. With this project for the design of an old villa in a contemporary style with boundary walls inspired by lattice work, rooftop terrace where the sea breeze can be felt on the skin and above all else a place where the composition of architectural volumes is resolved harmoniously.

BLAU complements the outdoor spaces around the house with the same pure architectural lines offering a restful calm to the body and the eyes.
