2020 Mojácar

Texts

Building in Mojácar is like building in the Forbidden City. As Roberto Puig did so brilliantly in his day.

The site is steep, like all the others, sandwiched between two terraced buildings, like all the others. And complying faithfully with the existing regulations.

Here once again, we are trying to build the loveliest house in the world.

Our building is also staggered over four levels between the two streets, the one above and the one below.

On the upper street although the regulations allow us to build two floors, we build just one, so as not to block the view of the neighbor behind.

On the street below, we unify the two levels, applying overwhelming logic.

In our “cascade of volumes”, there are only two terrace platforms onto which the corresponding rooms of this house will open.

The terrace parapet walls will be table high with a generous horizontal surface, finished in sturdy white ceramic tiling.

The entire structure will be painted in whitewash and the floors of all the terraces will be finished with large, heavy-duty white ceramic tiles.

From outside, from the sea, this brand new house will be seen as just one more piece of the village.
