Residential Architecture: Casa del Atrio (Atrium House) by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos: “..Almost everything that goes on inside this house in Valencia, Spain by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos is on show to visitors though a transparent glass facade..The L-shaped house is entitled Casa del Atrio, or Atrium House, in reference to the glazed elevation and skylight that bring light into the eastern wing..A large living/dining room occupies this space and offers residents a view out over the landscape of the Sierra Calderona..A basement floor is buried just beneath, but emerges on the southern facade to reveal a bedroom, study and gym that open out to a sunken terrace..Two more bedrooms are located in the northern wing of the ground floor and are screened behind partitions for privacy..” Extensive glazing, skylight, natural light..
