Designed to fit in harmoniously with the surroundings, the rooms inside this Murcia family home are connected to the exterior through the use of large windows and neutral materials by PORCELANOSA.
A minimalist house with Feng Shui accents
The house - designed by architecture studio Meeec - features white as the dominant colour and a minimalist décor scheme centred on straight lines and natural textures. It ushers in the natural light and offers a new take on the traditional Mediterranean courtyard, with its Feng Shui aesthetic suitably loaded with natural stones and vegetation. To achieve this balanced look, the architects decided to combine wooden structures with infinite stone surfaces. This can be seen in the kitchen, where the Emotions E3.70 model stretches out to the living room with an infinite worktop in Ars Beige Nature (XTONE).
The white symmetrical kitchen features subtle black accents (lighting, chairs and taps), and also includes a small oriental garden that provides the room with oxygen and a sense of calm. "The series of courtyards give the house a private, intimate feel, creating a filter between the exterior and the interior", says a Meeec Arquitectos representative.
A cantilevered staircase leads to the upper floor where the main bedrooms and bathrooms are located (featuring warm Ars Beige Nature floor tiles by XTONE). The staircase is made in Alpi Verde by XTONE, echoing the most sophisticated of marble, and in turn contrasts with the white and green Calacatta Green marble-look walls (XTONE). "This is an open and flexible space where the weather and privacy concerns were key drivers for the project", conclude the architects.
