Gabriel Montañés Studio as Architects

We received an assignment that is every architect firm’s dream: a large frontline plot with a gentle gradient facing south and following the coast. This project was not to build a holiday home, but a permanent residence in a privileged location, one to enjoy with both family and friends. The first step was to take maximum advantage of the breadth of the plot to appreciate the views over the Mediterranean and make the architecture blend into the landscape. The idea was to create a wide span in order to achieve exaggerated openings with glass doors that glide across and disappear behind walls, making the house itself retreat into the background.

All the rooms are connected to a central courtyard one way or the other, enabling the flow of natural refreshing breeze when the hot winds blow in from the Sahara. The openings, shutters, pergola and courtyard all adjust to ensure optimum comfort depending on the time of day and weather throughout the year. The house has been built in such a way that it flows flawlessly within the lie of the land, with barely any changes made to the natural terrain. Glass, wood, white plaster and ochre tones enhance the essence of this frontline property that is just metres from the Mediterranean. The house is designed for an urban family with a nod at Menorcan tradition. The option here is to simply wander down to swim from the rocks, not a beach.
