Integrated into the natural landscape of Pulpí in Almería, this property with two symmetrical levels stands out for its sense of balance and light. Architect Damián de Haro achieved these two defining concepts using neutral tones, natural materials and ceramic collections by PORCELANOSA Group.
Spacious rooms opening out to the exterior
The home stands out for its rational architecture: an infinity pool extends to the main hall, meeting a garden which wraps around the property. Where comfort and spaciousness are prioritised above all else. This runs through the layout of the ground floor, dedicated to the rooms used during the day - the living/dining room and kitchen - with large horizontal windows offering a view to the exterior.
To bring the concept of an open-plan, division-free space to life, de Haro opted for Bottega Caliza (Porcelanosa) cement-inspired floor tiles. The collection, with a distinctly soft surface, is highly resistant against shifts in temperature and moisture. The tiles were installed using Butech Colorstuk grouting material, improving the aesthetics of the property throughout the interior as well as the swimming pool and terrace areas outside.
A circular design in which every room is pulled together by minimalist décor - with a touch of industrial style - which highlights the construction materials used. White, grey and beige hues predominate throughout the property, and the façade features Image Cream slate-based cladding by Porcelanosa.
The two floors of the house are connected by a wooden cantilevered staircase, leading up to the master suite where sliding doors open out on to the upper terrace. The open en-suite bathroom features highlights including Toscano Stone wall tiles and XTONE® sintered mineral compact, combining smooth textures with Gamadecor bathroom furnishings and prioritising function over form.
