Villa ORIGEN… a garden-house

Villa ORIGEN… a garden-house


Origen is a project born from the wishes to inhabit a wonderful place, a garden-house.


The place: A plot of land of almost a hectare in size in the middle of a natural park, topographically very flat and facing the south. A true paradise on Earth.

When we are faced with such perfect nature, we cannot help but be overwhelmed and simply admire it. However, almost by itself, the project begins to take shape: it will only try to frame the land and put it in value. Unity will be the challenge.

A place keeps in its dna the key that will open up the architectural project.





On the other hand is the purpose. Quoting master Álvaro Siza: “Architecture is, above all, the creation of a stage for man.” In this case, we need to develop a single-family house of about 2,500 m2 with a set of a complex functional requirements that include spa areas, wellness spaces, guest areas, gourmet room, etc.

I was always amazed by the Alhambra in Granada, with its sequence of entwined courtyards and gardens, open to the sky, filtering the beautiful light of southern Andalusia, creating thousands of forms and shadows on its walls. Light is one of the central themes of architecture. Being able to understand and dose it is the key to creating a truly magical space. It is the only material that is given to us freely and, fortunately, here in our land it is in abundance, like liquid gold. You have to know how to love it and treat it well or it will rebel against you.





The building is developed on a single floor, taking a large part of the plot and embracing the landscape. It is a forceful and precise volume that closes outwards, jealous of the privacy of its inhabitants and opening completely to the natural park, as if wanting to embrace it and incorporate it into the project. It is certainly our intention to do so.

Welcome to the Experiential Architecture, ARK Architects

Welcome to the Experiential Architecture, ARK Architects

THIS magazine you’re reading is our new venture. And we’re just as ex- cited to embark upon this journey as we are every time we begin developing a new project. In fact, storytelling and communication are not far off from the work we’ve already done at ARK Archi- tects in the past years: creating singular spaces in places where there were only visions, dreams, projects...


In this magazine, we’re constructing a new reality where there used to be just a blank space. And it’s not just any reality, but a more complete and complex reality. A reality where living and feeling are the things that truly matter. That’s why ARK Magazine aims to be a polyhedral piece with an abundance of nuances, subjects, pictures... A magazine focused on architecture but also on art, sports, gastronomy, travel, etcetera. ARK Magazine strives to produce unique experiences for its readers. In the end, it all comes down to living and feeling. Our architecture is experiential. It’s not only about constructing walls, but also about creating spaces to generate unforgettable experiences.

With the same passion and excitement with which we work with our clients, and with the same passion that drives us to ‘live’ our architecture and to create experiences, we launch the first issue of ARK Magazine. Tenacity, effort and creativity won’t be lacking in the articles which, starting today, are now a part of ARK Architects’ project.
