By Rodolfo Amieva Jacobson and Diego Macías Domínguez González & Jacobson Architecture www.gjarquitectura.com For this avant-garde and revolutionary design project located in Marbella, the architects’ studio González&Jacobson Arquitectura started from a wise interpretation of the environment, which has then given rise to an open architecture that embodies a perfect symbiosis with the surrounding landscape. The outdoor space merges into the indoor space becoming one of its key characters. Its exuberant and emphatic fully-glazed volumes, the balance in the use and mixture of textures and materials, as well as its straight lines blend seamlessly with the blue tones of the sky and sea. The house looks splendorous and plays with the contrasts of light and colour, which smoothly modulate the perspective of the building. The building has four levels. The ground floor has been designed as the main stage for family life and it is directly connected to the outside as a single space. The most private area is the upper floor and on the roof you will find the surprising design of a big terrace with a swimming pool designed for stimulation and delight of the senses “leitmotiv” of the project. Orientation was another crucial factor when determining the design of the house, giving priority both to energy sustainability and the absolute predominance of the wonderful views of the Mediterranean sea, which, without doubt, make it more valuable. Nature plays a leading role thanks to the large windows that allow sunlight to flood into the house transmitting the feelings of lightness and transparency, which turn indoor spaces into spacious, bright and colourful areas that encourage you to relax and enjoy the different rooms embracing the landscape. The purpose of this design is not only to allow you to contemplate the landscape, but also to become part of it. Another constant factor of the design has been the search of sunlight, which floods into the house thanks to its orientation and opening to the outdoor space. The spacious terraces and amazing porch that dominates outside play with the volumes as they please and, at the same time, frame and endorse the landscape interacting with it and integrating it with the house itself. Water, which is present in the two pools and the pond, aligns with the environment and joins the architecture as a refreshing element, contributing to create a peaceful environment that is the complement of a minimalist and eclectic landscaping design based on green and sustainable criteria. In short, a unique and innovative design with the distinctive style of González&Jacobsoon Arquitectura. 20
