Luxury ALT House with dramatic sea views, Spain

Contemporary-Property-Calp-Spain-03

Valencia-based architectural practice Fran Silvestre Arquitectos have completed the ALT House project. Completed in 2012, the luxury clifftop property can be found in Calp, Spain.

According to the architects: “Due to the steepness of the plot and the desire to contain the house in just one level, a three-dimensional structure of reinforced concrete slabs and screens adapting to the plot’s topography was chosen, thus minimising the earthwork.

“This monolithic, stone-anchored structure generates a horizontal platform from the accessing level, where the contemporary Spanish house is located.

“The swimming-pool is placed on the lower level, on an already flat area of the site. The concrete structure is insulated from the outside and then covered by a flexible and smooth white lime stucco.

“The rest of materials, walls, pavements, the gravel on the roof… all maintain the same colour, respecting the traditional architecture of the area, emphasising it and simultaneously underlining the unity of the house.”
