A home on the seafront is a gift, but it is also a challenge. It is important to be aware that what is to be done will become part of the reviled (and rightly so) Mediterranean seafront. To this responsibility we must add the added difficulty of the coastal law and a change in local regulations that forced us to rethink about the project.

The initial idea arises from the idiosyncrasy of the sea itself: it is always the same, but it never appears the same. In that aspect it was decided that the house would appear light, only marked by its slabs, leaving the rest of the rooms that lean out towards the marina and towards the sea completely dressed in glass, so that they reflect that characteristic. These slabs can be read as a single line, as they maintain a continuity that gives the whole a great dynamism, which is accentuated by the staggering of the house, both in section (to adapt to the mountain), and in plant (to gain views).

The functional program, very neutral as it is a house for sale. It consists of 5 bedrooms, living room and kitchen, accompanying all the rooms with exterior spaces linked to them, for which the same flooring is used both inside and outside, which allows to accentuate the transparency and continuity.
