The IO house is located in a pine forest in Javea very close to the sea. It is located in an a rea where we find typical houses with a more traditional character. From here, we study the architectural bases of this typology to reinterpret them and develop our project from its most basic concepts.
The presence of the sea in front of the house and the situation of the building itself atop a mountain conditioned our approach toward the home.
We created a piece evocative of a sculptural character, sinuous, that would envelop us with its white planes, evoking the pure terrace in contrast to the Sea.
A piece that would enhance the existing landscape and that would somehow be a landmark in the landscape.
We use a skin of white concrete, clean and sinuous like the Mediterranean Sea, which gives it a certain sculptural character and which, through its white color, evokes the materials of classic Mediterranean façades.
We create a clean and simple space. An L-shaped piece around the pool and facing outwards.
Through its geometry, the day area, which is more public and for socializing, is totally differentiated from the night area, which is more intimate and closed.
A house in the highest area of a mountain facing the Mediterranean Sea that seeks a clean and calm view. The house on the hilltop.
