spanish architect alberto campo baeza has constructed a radical residential property positioned at the edge of the atlantic ocean. referencing the endless sea that stretches out in front of the dwelling, the project is called ‘house of the infinite’ – a design comprised of a podium crowned with an upper horizontal plane. oriented to face the horizon, the home is envisioned as a jetty built from roman travertine stone that elegantly complements the sandy beach.

the structure is formed of a large box, 20 meters wide and 36 meters deep, with two floors of the property embedded within the solid rock. the terrain connecting the house to the street further emphasizes the platform’s proportions, with access to the home provided via a trench in the form of stairs dug into the upper surface of the podium. the elevated stone plane is surrounded by three walls that protect occupants from strong prevailing winds.
