Minimalist house in Ontinyent by Borja Garcia Studio

Boasting contemporary design and an all white colour palette, House Ontinyent is a minimalist’s dream. Located in the Ontinyent district of Valencia in Spain, this stylish home was designed by Barcelona-based architectural practice Borja Garcia Studio.

The core element of the interior design project is a large open space on the ground floor and a sculptural staircase made of concrete. “The materials, with an absolute use of white, are always naked and honest,” says the designer. The basement, a large open space between concrete walls, connects the house with the pool. The pool, built in white concrete, represents a large floating water surface.

The former textiles factory now converted into the headquarters of an outdoor furniture manufacturer Gandia Blasco integrates new residential activity into the existing building. For this reason the house was designed as an extension of modulation and structural system of the old building.

The contemporary Spanish property is located between party walls with dimensions of 22×7 meters and has five levels constructed.

The ground floor has some social spaces that end into a vertical space chaired by a huge mural with a visual overview from the history of the company. The materials selected were carefully sourced to ensure coherence between the project and the company Gandia Blasco.

Finally, a white concrete pool encloses a water suspended box. The proportions of the pool connect with the rear façade of the home. Also the access stairway is a continuation of the system used inside the project.

The overall result is a minimalist home with a powerful constructive solution that gives the project a strong identity and character.
