This monolithic house in Alicante by Spanish studio Fran Silvestre Arquitectos features an 18-metre-long balcony that offering spectacular sea views that it invites one to spend time, relax and do nothing.

Due to the steepness of the plot and the desire to contain the house in just one level, it was chosen a three-dimensional structure of reinforced concrete slabs and screens adapting to the plot’s topography, thus minimizing the earthwork. This monolithic, stone-anchored structure generates a horizontal platform from the accessing level, where the house itself is located. The swimming-pool is placed on a lower level, on an already flat area of the site.

The concrete structure is insulated from the outside and then covered by a flexible and smooth white lime stucco. The rest of materials, walls, pavements and the gravel on the roof maintain the same colour, respecting the traditional architecture of the area, emphasizing it and simultaneously underlining the unity of the house.
