A Beach house in the coastline sea front designed as a two perpendicular volumes covering the maximum width of the site: the volume of common spaces open towards the view and closes to the wind that comes from the south, and the volume of the bedrooms perpendicular to this and located in the east, taking advantage of the morning light.

The common spaces are designed as a single large space, gathering the kitchen, dining room, living room and family room, and are differentiated by diverse heights, and a stone wall that makes the use of the living room independent. Towards the sea there is a terrace that links all these spaces and that is protected with a mobile glass system.

The house is made with reinforced concrete walls and the width of these is determined by the thermal inertia necessary for the house to accumulate heat during the day and release it during the night.

The house was designed by Benjamin Goñi Arquitectos and Claro + Westendarp arquitectos.
