Fran Silvestre plans a ‘House in the air’ with Porcelanosa

Formal purity and diaphanous spaces characterise this house that seems to levitate above the ground, opening onto the Atlantic Ocean

Casa en el aire is a minimalist-looking home, whose refined forms bear the stamp of architect Fran Silvestre. With a dominant colour scheme based on whites and neutral tones, the open-plan space gives way to the natural surroundings. A return to basics where the everyday becomes exceptional.

Located on the coast of Cadiz, Casa en el aire is set in natural surroundings overlooking the Atlantic. The residential has an architecture of cubic shapes and glass walls that offer extraordinary panoramic views from any room on the main floor. A structure that provides protection from the winds of the area and acts as a frame to enjoy the surroundings.

In order to overcome the slope of the land, the house appears as an architectural piece where straight and refined lines prevail. Forms that contrast with the surrounding nature.

Connected spaces

Casa en el aire sits on a grey base that harmonises with the surrounding terrain. This is the starting point for positioning the house in the desired location and guaranteeing the best views of the Atlantic.

The residential consists of two floors, of which the upper floor is the main floor. This, in turn, is divided into three spaces, leaving the central one as the day area. The kitchen, dining room and living room share a large, open-plan area. Three rooms that merge through their minimalist lines and a uniform chromatic palette. In addition, the absence of structural elements that interfere between this area and the landscape contributes to emphasise the sensation of spaciousness and luminosity.

At both ends of the day area are the bedrooms. These have the same refined aesthetics based on custom-made lacquered wooden furniture.

In the same way, the use of the Bottega White L large format porcelain flooring, both indoors and outdoors, contributes to blurring the boundaries. An extension that is accentuated with the installation of the ceramic product by materials by Porcelanosa Grupo, together with the minimalist aluminium carpentry. For its part, the Berna Acero model is the one chosen to dress the terrace and the infinity pool.

Finally, at the back, a quiet courtyard has been designed to take shelter when the wind blows strongly. A space located on the ground floor that articulates the rooms with complementary uses to the main dwelling.

Minimalist interiors that open up to the outdoors

The pure, clean forms and marked straight lines that characterise this home are continued inside. The kitchen is open to the living-dining room and is projected outwards, providing spacious living areas on the upper floor.

Equipped with kitchen furniture Emotions® by Gamadecor, is an open-plan, island design. It also has the single lever mixer tap for osmosis, chrome and with the Osmosis swivel spout from Noken in the water area. Furthermore, the proposal is completed with the PORCELANOSA flooring in neutral tones and large format used throughout the entire floor, installed with the joint materials from Butech.

Finally, in the bathroom we find a spacious mueble suspended with integrated handle from the Emotions® series by Gamadecor. Equipment that comes with a white worktop made of Krion® K-Life 1100 and a shower tray with Butech ceramic grating.
