Situated in a setting of extraordinary magnificence and profitable scene, before the Mediterranean Sea, between El Portixol and Cala Blanca, the Sardinera House lays on the highest point of a slope, flanked by a headland entering the ocean on a straight of turquoise waters.
“The first thought for the outline depended on appreciating and improving the all encompassing perspectives of the setting, by making an unwinding scrutinizing environment that permits getting a charge out of the experience gave by the spot.”
An arrangement of solid dividers is tossed confronting diverse bearings, packing and extending the perspectives and creating a few pictures. The vertical surfaces are restricted on a level plane by long cantilevers that amplify towards the ocean, in this way making verandas that encase the substantial patio.
In view of their productive framework, these cantilever don’t incline toward the dividers, however fit in the middle of them, in this way expanding the visual strain and creating dumbfounding vibes of hugeness and weightlessness.
“The perspectives outwards are surrounded between the structural surfaces and the pool surface, laid out not too far off.”
The longitudinal façades of the house are the inverse. The passage façade, hermetical and hazy, is secured by a programmed arrangement of customizable blinds made of brightened Accoya wood. It shields the façade from the sun article and, in, as far as possible the review from the road.
Despite what might be expected, the East façade is a great deal more penetrable and straightforward. The solid vertical surfaces are shut by huge glass sheets, ensured by cantilevers and crooked blinds that bring an ethereal Mediterranean character. Sardinera house has an in number tectonic character as a result of its expressive materials. The composition of the white cement poured in timber formwork and the surface of the brightened timber have accomplished such a similitude, to the point that they once in a while appear the same, as it happens in the horizontal windows.
The composition created by the print of the timber formwork is observable on the solid surface, in this way building up a typical dialect with the white-shaded timber utilized as a part of blinds, roofs, gathering dividers and furniture. A white shade covers all the component, which are diverse in view of its material, producing inconspicuous changes of composition. The neighborhood stone brick work dividers construct a base for the white solid volumes to remain on furthermore interface the building to the scene.
The house mirrors the development process. All the auxiliary parts are made of uncovered solid, while the nook is made of timber and glass. There is an entrance through a twofold stature volume with side dividers pointing the perspective at the ocean and offering the guest a first contact with the skyline. The day rooms are on the ground floor, as a major aspect of a liquid set explained by the white solid dividers.
Some vegetation is presented in the in the middle of spaces, moving the greenhouse into the house. Every room opens towards the skyline through its own veranda. The family room has a fundamental part and a solitary element, a glass corner surrounding the best perspectives of the ocean. Every volume on the first floor has a room. Rather than permitting frontal perspectives surrounded by the dividers, the glass corners offer a great deal all the more fascinating all encompassing perspectives.
Every room has a little glass gallery, like a straight window, set back of the limit of the cantilever, so to improve the visual significance of the level surfaces. The staircase has been created as a sculptural component. The ocean is unmistakable through its translucent glass steps. This straightforwardness additionally permits the regular light to touch base to the cellar. Around evening time, the strides light up as a light.
The handrail is a slanting surface that takes after the same thought than the structural dividers. On the storm cellar floor, other than administration and stopping regions, there are some visitor rooms, a rec center and an indoor pool, with a sauna and a changing area.

“The indoor and open air pools are on diverse floors yet connected by a longitudinal window. Through it, the water of the open air pool throws shadows over the indoor pool.” All the lights in the house are customizable LED coordinated in the structural engineering. Outside, the lines of lighting draw the same course than the dividers of the house. Additionally, the building satisfies the ecological prerequisites and holds an A declaration for vitality proficiency, because of a suitable study on sun presentation and ventilation, notwithstanding the utilization of geothermal wells, emptied tube authorities on the rooftop and a tank for gathering precipitation water.
The outside space has been planned as an expansion of the indoor space. The lines that characterize the building are drawn past the dividers, denoting the examples of the vegetation, the asphalt, the pool and the open air lighting. The greenhouse shows a few zones with altogether different components. Each open air zone is solitary however has a place with the same idea of a homogeneous indigenous Mediterranean garden.
The level and sunny passage zone, contains some olive trees with enormous curved trunks that give identity and class to the entrance. The slanting range reproduces the run of the mill patios of the slopes by the ocean. Pine trees, citrus trees and natural plants are shown on these distinctive levels, contained by stone work dividers that connections the greenery enclosure to the storm cellar of the house.
“It results in a house with a few spaces where the ocean can be mulled over, from each of its indoor rooms or open air ranges.” (Ramón Esteve).The inside configuration has been completely made by Ramón Esteve Estudio. The asphalt is made of grayish cleaned concrete, nonstop both inside and outside. All the timber is brightened Accoya wood. The vast hanging seats in the bathrooms are made of regular stone.
