* Residential Architecture: Las Palmeras Beach House by RRMR Arquitectos

Residential Architecture: Las Palmeras Beach House by RRMR Arquitectos: “..The house benefits from the increasing slope to create a sculptural and aesthetic volume. The plot is located besides an open park. Despite the compact character one can see the lightness and dynamic properties of the volume, characteristics that strengthen its relation with the public park..The monolithic and massive volume chosen as a starting point and worked as a big carved block searches the contrast in a duality introspection and permeability. This position prioresses the views towards the ocean and the park but closed to the immediate context..Consequently, special attention was given to inner space and it´s visual to the environment. There are three visual axes that relate to different levels and its directionality with exterior. The first axis is horizontal from the main entrance and steered to the park. Perpendicular to it is the second axe which is vertical looking towards the sky and where circulation is developed vertically. The third one directing the view from the social area towards the ocean. These three axes merge in a single space that integrates not only the most important visuals and circulations but the social and intimate areas..”  Ample glazing, natural light, views, privacy, color and materials sensibility, spiral staircase..
