Geometry-Driven Architecture: House in Rocafort by Ramon Esteve Studio
Geometry was the starting point for this modern project in Valencia, Spain, designed by Ramon Esteve Studio; “The concept was born from the trapezoidal shape of the plot, located in a residential area. The vegetation is a dense element of edge. That is the reason why the house is proposed like a volume where focusing views becomes especially important”. Massive walls finished in bright white contrast the lush vegetation, delivering a visually appealing exterior. Hidden by the trees, a wooden terrace takes the focus off the simple lines of the street facade.
Every room is provided with a different character and the inside-outside transition is very smooth. The social area is connected to the deck and swimming pool through glass doors. A number of voids in the walls masked with wooden strips allow natural illumination. Light shines bright and strong through the voids in the porch, yet is veiled and controlled in the bedrooms, creating a dense atmosphere.
