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.

 

 

Function

 

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.

 

 

Interaction

 

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.

This stunning modern villa, located in the hills of La Zagaleta, sets the bar even higher for luxury residences in Costa del sol. Essentialized architecture, a review and exploration of historic archetypes and classicist principles adapted to the times and needs of contemporary life. The outcome is a modern and elegant masterpiece with exceptional panoramic views of the Mediterranean coast and the mountains from every corner. This is the result of wide openings towards the sea of its main elevation, in contrast to the privacy provided by the rest of the facades, which includes the entrance to the house.
