‘Ripolles-Manrique’ is a beautiful multi-unit house designed by studio Teo Hidalgo Nácher for two close families and located in Benicassim, Castellón, (Spain). The hill-top site overlooks the Mediterranean sea and has an irregular geometry. Here is more from the architects: “A series of transition spaces between the inside and the outside – very common in popular Mediterranean architecture – work together to build a relationship between the houses and their exteriors and provide a sense of order and control. The interiors can be extended and adapted with sliding glass doors, opening up new areas of space that can be used for unexpected purposes.For each house, the main entrance is on the first floor where the private living spaces are; three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study. The ground floor is designed as an open-plan space that opens up onto the rear patio, side gardens and front terrace and contains all the common areas; the living/ dining room, the kitchen, the utility room and a toilet.” Freshome readers, what is your stand on “twin homes” – cute or unoriginal ?
