La Terraza - Puente Romano

Located in one of the most exceptional areas of Marbella, this intervention takes place in Puente Romano, surrounded by gardens and the Mediterranean Sea.   Taking advantage of its privileged location, the terrace was designed with the views in mind. From the beginning we were clear that this space had to preserve the atmosphere of the area and the rest of the house. For this, we worked with natural materials such as stone for flooring or wood for pergola and furniture, ending with an infinity pool where its water leads to the sea.   The terrace was created as a complete area, where everything is understood as a space that is in harmony with the landscape.    More

Starting from the east ground floor, between the first two stone walls, we have the living room and the dining room and the office upstairs, looking at the double height of the living room.

All the textures and colours are combined in harmony and deliver a sense of appeasement as well as direct proximity to the nature. There is an bedroom with en suite bathroom upstairs. The floor lamps and sconces on the second floor attract your attention and aptly match the general quiet and minimalistic interior. The first floor houses a sauna, which is definitely going to be to any guest's liking. Architect: Maxim Obertas Photographer: Andrey Bezuglov More
