EL GOLF D17 BEACH HOUSE

RIOFRIO ARQUITECTOS as Architects

The house intends to break with the housing prototype built in the surroundings, it seeks to differentiate itself by adopting two levels that avoids a reading as a static block and achieves, by contrast, a fluid horizontality. This allows us to play with the scale of the project through orthogonal planes that define the levels of the house. On the lateral facade predominates a suspended wall that runs the entire length of the lot, that contrasts with the lower broken plinth.


This facade, like the rear facade, is closed to the surroundings to give privacy to the social and intimate areas of the house, avoiding views from the neighbors. Emphasizing this intention, the most striking opening is located solely on the terrace of the front facade that allows a more direct relationship with the environment.


To take advantage of the views, the living room, dining room, kitchen, terrace, pool, and main bedroom are located on the second level. Secondary bedrooms, living room, and service are located on the first level, where there is also an access courtyard that distributes into a hall directed to the stairs, to achieve a more direct connection between the two levels.
