Volumes and spaces in the spotlight

22 January, 2020

We completed the construction of an avant-garde single-family home.

This detached house, consisting of two semi-basements, ground floor and upper floor, stands out for a meticulously studied structure in which the upper floors have been moved to the bottom of the plot as plateaus, reducing perceived height of the house.

Also remarkable are the vertical walls rotated on the side facade. These walls, with the right inclination, allow us to enjoy a picture perfect framing of the Pontevedra estuary, while isolating ourselves from the adjoining homes in order to enjoy privacy inside. In the house, diaphanous spaces predominate, with a characteristic staircase in which all its steps have been embedded into the wall, thus offering a buoyant feeling that brings personality to the interior. Outside, there is a pool with saline chlorination and a glazed porch in the garden.

This house located in Marín (Pontevedra) was designed by the architect Mauro Lomba, 126 plans of detail and structure were made, thus achieving a perfect adaptation to the needs presented.
