Casa Benimaquía, located in Moraira, seeks a dialogue between the home and nature through simple and thoughtful architecture, natural materials, creating very intimate spaces, but at the same time open to the natural landscape.
The project of this house was born from the desire of its owners to be in full contact with nature, and to have a house integrated with the environment and inspired by traditional architecture.
With this project an aspect of traditional and rural housing is sought at the same time as actual, proposing an efficient and sustainable house, following a bioclimatic strategy in the complete design of the project, with the use of natural elements of the environment, traditional materials of the area, with a structure mainly made of wood and sustainable construction materials.
The house is developed from independent pieces joined by patios surrounded by lattices that function as transition elements between the different rooms. A fragmented house is generated, using construction techniques typical of the Mediterranean. A large porch is created, evoking the traditional “riu rau”, to be outdoors protected from the sun while enjoying the breeze, as well as an indoor fireplace to enjoy next to it, creating a visually continuous space.
This house envelopes you, natural light is the genuine protagonist, enhancing the house’s natural materials and different spaces.
