Who else if not the Spanish will create this warm, smoothly curved space, with a sensual presence of light wood and an intriguing reference to the 70ths interior design? The project of Antonio Macia Mateu architects consists in redesigning and refurbishing a ground floor of a house situated on a hillside near the sea.
The goal was to open and reconnect the living premises with their surrounding and nature. So blurring the borders between architecture and interior design, between construction and furnishing the architects created a home where a single piece of furniture inspired by the work of renowned photographer Edward H. Weston is smoothly traveling from one end of the house to the another and becoming the main defining element of the space. Most of the furniture and the decorative constructs are specially designed for this space in particular – the bespoke vertical gardens, armchairs, tables and even carpets are adding to the specific charm and notable character of this home project.
The color palette of the premises is dominated by the warm caramel of the wood and the light timber flooring and wall cladding but dark color accents of the crisp-lined furniture give focus and dynamic to the color solutions and interior design. The smooth curves of the wall-furniture invite you to stroke its lines with palm, the wicker nest-like chair next to the exotic green-wall invites you to sit and relax- on and all this house in Altea is one very welcoming and cozy place to enjoy.
