Architectural studio Juma Architects designed this conemporary residence located in Spain.
JUMA, who consider it a privilege to build in this unique context, has naturally opted to preserve as many trees on the site so as to benefit from the natural shade they provide.” – Juma Architects
“Next to the driveway is a staircase that descends straight to the entrance. In this way, JUMA made full use of the slope of the terrain, bringing the first floor up to the level of the street. The first floor accommodates the bedrooms, all of which feature large window sections. To prevent overheating, these windows are equipped with blinds that consist of fine, vertical wooden slats.” – Juma Architects
“The floor plan is arranged in an L-shape, fully oriented toward the side that offers the most spectacular view. The main volume of the L-form contains the kitchen, the other volume houses the seating area. In this way, both spaces embrace the terraces and provide the necessary privacy from the neighbours.” – Juma Architects
The architecture is defined by a play of horizontal lines, formed by several overlapping canopies. In some places, holes have been made in the canopies, creating interesting light variations.
In terms of materials, JUMA opted for a combination of white, smooth plaster with a rough natural stone from the area.” – Juma Architects
