Dreamy Moliner House, Spain
Moliner House was completed in 2008 and has been designed by Alberto Campe Baeza a Madrid-based design studio. The chic minimalistic property can be found in Zaragoza, Spain. According to the architects the chic home was built for a poet. The project was to make a house for dreaming, living and sleeping. A house in which to read, to write and to think.
The architects erected high walls to create a box open to the sky, like a nude, metaphysical garden, with concrete walls and floor. To create an interior world. They dug into the ground to plant leafy trees.
And floating in the center, a box filled with the translucent light of the north. Three levels were established. The highest for dreaming. The garden level for living. The deepest level for sleeping.
For dreaming they created a cloud at the highest point. A library constructed with high walls of light diffused through large translucent glass. With northern light for reading and writing, thinking and feeling.
For living, the garden was south facing for sunlight. A space that is all garden, with transparent walls that bring together inside and outside.
And for sleeping, perhaps dying, the deepest level. The bedrooms below, as if in a cave.
Once again, the cave and the cabin.
