  • Seafront House is a minimalist architecture project located in Port de la Selva, Spain, designed by OAB. The house is constructed on a deep, narrow plot of land between two streets, Passeig de la Plaja and Calle Selva de Mar, with taller buildings extremely close by. The section resolves the conditions imposed by the regulations, thereby improving conditions of insolation and ventilation and tailoring the upper reaches as traditional façades of the protected patios. Given the elongated proportions of the land, its northern solar orientation, the difficult meteorological conditions and the lack of privacy, the house opts for a secluded, sheltered patio in a central location open to the house, which becomes a space for interacting and living in, playing a role by day and by night and being protected from the heat, cold, rain and wind.
