The modern and inviting House Among Pines in Murcia, Spain offers its inhabitants 467 square meters of comfortable, stylish interior living spaces. Designed by Xpiral, the residence was built to expand the interior life to the outside environment, allowing the owners to experience a modern lifestyle and a strong connection to nature. Embedded into the mountain, the lower floor shelters the carport and an access point to the upper floor. The cantilevering volume helped in constructing a unique architecture, personalized for the terrain and inhabitants. A suspended C-shaped floor plan allows the south and east facades to be well lit through extensive use of glass and help the interiors stay bright and sunny whenever the weather permits it. There are a few special features that express the comfort and modernity of this house: the central courtyard, the solarium and the swimming-pool, as well as the roof lien that blocks views from neighbors and captures valley and mountain scenes in the distance. Concrete, thermo-clay and steel are beautifully contrasted by the use of wood in different ways, from walls to floors, so the residence displays a beautiful mix of building materials. Look at the photos for a better grasp of the residence's architecture and let us know what you think.
