The project was developed around a central patio and has 2 stories. On the ground floor are located the public and services spaces. On the first floor are the main bedrooms and the guest room. A game of volumes around the central empty space is developed alternating full and empty spaces, light and shadow, with areas partially covered and additional elements of water that integrate themselves within the architecture. The concentration of the construction is towards the center of the patio, leaving all around the perimeter large gardened spaces, creating different ambiances in each place. From the bedrooms of the upper floor, you can enjoy the best views towards the golf course and Mediterranean Sea.
