Two members of the same family asked us to build two semi-detached houses that shared some spaces. We planned a design that apparently looks like a single building, but in reality consists of two totally independent entities that share the basement for parking and the garden area that surrounds the building. A single volume with horizontal lines formed by the balconies and eaves that cross the building from end to end, and the change of material used in the areas back from the façade plane help to give the feeling of uniformity to the whole.

The staircase that connects all the floors combines natural wood and iron, forming steps without risers, which combined with the large two-storey high window generates a minimalist, bright space.
In the SANTOS kitchen, the NEOLITH top is combined with a solid chestnut wood bar that gives an organic touch to the minimalist design. The kitchen merges with the dining area and living room, enjoying the light of the south-facing aspect and connecting the garden, pool, Mediterranean pine trees and sea. With the creation of a single living room, dining room and kitchen space surrounded by large windows that occupy practically all the south and west facades we were able to provide the day area with great amplitude and lighting, retaining the individuality of the rooms through fixtures such as the fireplace or the kitchen island.

On the first floor there is a suite with dressing room and private bathroom with direct sea views. The bed faces the large window, which overlooks the sea, and the wall where the headboard rests has a large glazed surface that separates the bedroom from the dressing room and allows access to the views. In this way, the three rooms that make up the suite (bedroom, dressing room and bathroom) can enjoy the superb views thanks to the location of the building. In the bathroom, we highlight the 
wall taps of matt copper colour and the sink, formed with anthracite grey porcelain with a metal copper effect, creating an interplay that overlaps materials and textures.
