Set atop of a steep terrain in southern Spain with a steep slope, Fran Silvestre Arquitectos has designed an all-white house that negotiates the dramatic change in topography. Titled ‘house in Benahavís’, the property takes advantage of the site’s views, the home’s primary living accommodation is found on the upper level, which is supported by a single building set at a perpendicular angle to the slope. This space contains the home’s technical and service areas and allows residents to descend to the lower level, which includes a terrace and a swimming pool that stretches out into the garden. The basement also accommodates a garage, a large storage area, steam and locker rooms, and a bedroom. upstairs.
On the opposite side of the house, a multi-purpose room and two offices are illuminated by northern light, the four bedrooms, including the master bedroom, each have adjoining bathrooms positioned at the center of the home which are illuminated by skylights.
