The project’s site is located on the Benisa coastline, in the northeast of the Alicante province. Situated in the Racó de Galeno residential development, the plot extends over a total area of 1,527.18 sqm. The particularity of this project is the exposed concrete roofwhich is only supported by four metal pillars placed at key points. The pure and structural geometry of the roof covers a transparent rectangular prism that accommodates the specific housing program. The unconfined and longitudinal layout of the house is revealed gradually through the different spaces that follow a sequenced configuration, flowing from the public areas to the more private areas, housing a total of 3 double bedrooms plus the master suite, and opening up completely towards the powerful views that reach from the Cabo de Oro in Moraira to the Ifach Rock in Calpe. The green roof, another important feature of this architectural masterpiece, in addition to being a key element for an efficient thermal insulation, simulates a floating canopy on the plot and integrates the building into the surroundings. The unusual shape of the infinity swimming pool has been conceived to adapt to the topography and the geometry of the exterior space. The nature of the materials used seek nobility, sobriety and elegance. The predominant materials, which stand out for their nobility, sobriety and elegance, are exposed concrete and the locally sourced dry-stone exterior walls, which provide warmth through the golden tones and textures, generating appealing spaces inside the house and an imposing volume on the outside.
Benissa is a small town in Spain in the province of Alicante, 275 m above sea level, and one of the oldest towns on the Costa Blanca.

The territory of Benissa also contains terraced vineyards, mountains and palm trees. Spanish village houses, with doorsteps directly onto the street, internal courtyards and deceptively spacious inside. Old finques (a farm or country estate) sit on large plots amongst vineyards with panoramic views to the sea.
