casa 1510 by nordest arquitectura emerges from the mountainous landscape of spain

nordest arquitectura designs casa 1510 as a volume floating over the mountainous landscape of spain. the residential project introduces a space for contemplation that opens to both the distant views and a private garden. the building is integrated into the landscape, reducing its presence to an embedded concrete volume. other elements are expressed with natural stone sourced directly from the site, suggesting a natural emergence from the land.

nordest arquitectura organizes the house as a composition of volumes whose interstitial space generates an intimate garden. shielded from the strong winds which sweep over the hill, this landscaped courtyard introduces a space to enjoy the environment. with an ambiguous boundary between the garden and the interior, the succession of programs serve as an extension of this garden, enveloped in stone.

the entrance to the house is generated by a staircase excavated out of the bedrock. a collection of bedrooms is situated beneath the main volume which floats overhead. an interior staircase allows access to the main level, divided in two parts, comprising a room which opens toward the courtyard and a main living space with a horizontal aperture, offering a sweeping visual connection toward the sea views and the garden.

  • That is luscious! “Just happened to have some stone nearby.” Too bad the site has so many neighbors.
