simultaneously introverted & extroverted

Casa de la Brisa is a holiday house situated in a typical village of the Costa Brava, Spain. The strong, expressive volume is anchored on a plot with steep slopes that offer views onto the open sea. Designed by Buchmeiervil? the project aim was to create a house that offered privacy and captured views. Therefore, the house is simultaneously introverted and extroverted, granting privacy and accentuating the stunning views.

From the hill and side of access it presents itself closed like a defense tower, a fortress. On the other side, where it faces the sea, it is completely open and transparent. Continuous spaces predominate, with no visual barriers between the interior and the exterior. Exposed concrete, stone, and plaster. The furniture and doors are tailor-made out of oak and Corten Steel. There was no paint used in this house, so the interior embodies the signature of the crafts that shaped it: The blacksmith, carpenter, stonemason and plasterer. Hereby the building will acquire a natural and authentic patina over time.
