They asked for advice on finding a good land and ordered the design of a single house, which should be easy to maintain and should have three bedrooms. The home should be in harmony with the environment.
From outside, attention is drawn to the combination of materials used by Gomez – a mix of cedrino painted wood and white stripes turquoise, alternating with granite surfaces stone grey. This house is “Reminiscent of tent on a european beach” according to Martin.
There are two separate areas (totaling 200 m2) connected by galleries (other 100 m2). There is a bedroom, looking east and a suite in three quarters. The second area, at right angles to the living room is the dining room and kitchen. They are loft type with long and narrow view to the pool and the sea, and surrounded by two terraces with eucalyptus wood floors and ceilings rods treaty.
The repair of the winds, is a nice design for outer space – relaxing and divided into three zones. In one zone is the pool, cement grey stuccoed and a stone wall side, there is a great stream of water that is used for filling. There is a room next to outside grill in stone.
