A lovely view of the sea 180 degrees is the first thing that strikes us of ‘House Curve‘, the project of RGB Architects for a home in Altea, which stands out for its integration with the landscape. This was, in fact, the starting point of the work. Something as unique and important as being aware of how you are going to perceive a building. In the end, the first image is the one that we recorded and, in the ‘House Curve” occurs as well: an architecture that accompanies us on the path and helps us to discover it from beginning to end.
Get these sea views it is not a coincidence. The key is the location of the plot, located in a considerable slope in the upper part of a development that develops along the profile of a mountain. This effect, which makes it unique, binds to the way in which one enters the housing. This is not an entry either. Access to the site is produced by the main thoroughfare of urbanization, and the way to find out is, literally, after a very tight corner, as if the parcel is avalanzara about us.
Hence the name ‘House Curve’ is suitable to call this home your architecture accompanies us and invites us to enter through the stunning curves that you hold so curvy. A feeling that comforts and connects us to the sea, which opens up after the plot, aside from the typical building robust and mass. In its place, we find a facade of 47 meters lines that brings dynamism and freshness in the heart of Altea.
A building with three floors interiors
The housing is divided into three indoor plants, each with their functions and characteristics. On the one hand, the visit would start with the basement, which makes the times of access, and garage along with other uses complementary. We also found the ground floor, which houses the area of the bedrooms of the daughters of the guests, along with the gym and spa area. And, finally, the first floor, which contains the piece of the day, the pool and the master bedroom.
These three spaces are perfectly rectangular, without any type of way that you can subtract functionality to the area livable. In contrast, the exterior covers are the ones that assume the role of a break with the orthogonality, give the set the sinuosity and the dynamism of the search for as well try to mimic the way to discover the house and subtract drama to your appearance.
But, how do you get this provision so harmonious that fits perfectly with the scenery? To do this, the architecture team opted, as we have mentioned, by integrate the dwelling in the mountain. Areas such as the basement and the ground floor appear in the same vertical line, while the first floor (the main) is located floor recessed, so that the terrace and the pool are developed in the ceiling of the ground floor.
We can not leave aside the shapes that you draw the swimming pool in push-pull with the rest of the plot. An area adjacent to the garden, we are even closer to the coast, which opens step thanks to the architecture projected in the form of a curve. It is the same curve that allows us to discover the sea, the mountain and the horizon that are deployed on them. Do you go with us to this project designed by RGB Arquitectos? You will be sure that you love it!
A construction that welcomes us
The shape of the house and the significant flights of terraces allow access to the housing becomes an experience gradual. In access, it happens to be completely on the outside, that your own home can welcome you and cover you with those flights. The main entrance of the house, consisting of a lobby to triple-height.
Main access to the housing
As we said, the house itself he welcomes you and covers you with your flights until you reach the main entrance of the house, consisting of a lobby to triple-height.
The building integrates with the mountain
The perfect location of this building never ceases to amaze us. Situated on a considerable slope in the upper part of a housing estate, ‘House curve’ develops along the profile of a mountain, and what makes it so eye-catching, imposing and integrated into the landscape.
A spectacular swimming pool
One of the highlights of this home is, without a doubt, your incredible pool that impacts us for how it integrates with the sea and the mountain views. The pool maintains a flight of 6 meters along the greater part of their length of 21 meters. In this way, how was I going to go unnoticed?
Exterior cladding white colour
As we can see in this image, to the materiality outside, we opted for a coating multi-layer continuous color white, in keeping with the mediterranean tradition of the environment. THE design is accompanied with large panels of glass with carpentry in the color graphite.
“A significant forged curved white color that make up the cantilevers, and among them the planes of glass so that the contrast between both emphasize the effect of the flight and the pursuit of lightness”, they explain from the study of architecture.
Dynamic lighting and linear
The lighting you try to follow also the concepts of linearity, energy and movement that projected to the same facade. In fact, it is an element capable of uniting different areas, as we can see in places such as the lobby. In the case of the exterior, the lighting is used to mark the full shape of the house and to understand even more the house curve.
Pieces of wood, white lacquered
The materiality interior highlighted by wooden elements that have attempted to follow the same design concept for the home, based on the lines curve. One aspect that we observed in the combination of pieces of wood, white lacquered with other natural wood whose veins were really dynamic.
Unique design on doors, cabinets and panelling
The doors, cupboards and panelling, as well as the kitchen, also continue this concept of wood, painted white with natural wood. Some designs stand out as unique as colorful.
Pieces of porcelain tiles large format
In addition to the wood, to other panelling is used pieces of porcelain large format. This is the case of the exterior of the bathrooms, which helps the understanding of these as separate boxes within the spaces of the rooms.
Spa and fitness area
We can not leave aside the space more playful of the house, the spa and the gym, where other porcelain large format faux marble calacatta, is the main protagonist.
