Seaside Retreat in La Juanita is a house conceived for spending one's holidays and off season occasional visits. An opportunity to think abouth the ways we live in these vast coastal scenarios, where collective spaces are the gatherers of social activivies, of encounter and of light-hearted interchange. In a complementary way, private spaces act as hideaways for the most intimate living: spaces of retreat, of love, of rest. These two categories are taken to a limit, separating and reconnecting, and allowing the creation of surprising living spatialities.
The house is defined through elementary spatial movements that when gathered generate a particular interiority; the master suite is elevated, allowing views of the horizon and provoking intermediary covered spaces; the separation between the ground floor suites creates a contained landscape patio. Prefabrication and rational assembly are essential constructive aspects of the project.
Towards the side boundaries of the plot, the house is self-enclosed to its immediate surroundings through its prefabricated concrete walls, while front and back sectors are open to the landscape in a more direct way, with the use of filters in the facades.
