in a suburban region of valencia, spanish practice fran silvestre arquitectos has designed an elegant family dwelling that takes a profoundly elliptical form. named ‘balint house’, the residence boasts a continuous sweeping facade that not only encloses the building, but also disguises the visual impact of the two-storey property. the dwelling is placed at the edge of the plot, leaving enough space for a crescent-shaped swimming pool and a large garden whose boundaries are blurred with planted vegetation.

living accommodation is articulated around a central void, which rises through the core of the structure, connecting the internal program. open plan space at ground floor level contains the home’s communal activities, with an expansive kitchen opening onto the pool-adjacent patio. above, a large master bedroom adjoins a roof terrace that overlooks the garden at the rear of the property, while two further bedrooms are housed at the front of the plan.
