The good orientation and the view across the city of San Sebastian make Marichulegui villa a privileged place to live.
The house places, almost instinctively, the main spaces oriented diagonally looking for the sights to the Concha bay which are encased between two neighbour villages. To place the maximum possible number of spaces whit this condition, leads to group, apparently in a disordered way, tightening in the narrow front of the plot, as if they were the heads of a children group that who want to look through a little window at the same time. So, the interior space keeping its fluid and unitary condition, creates various areas where the nearest references disappeared in favour of the far sight.
The resulting volume, covered in a granite skin, both in the facades and in the covers, as a carved min-eral. In this way, the bay is perceived as a stony and unitary object inserted in the chaotic landscape of the slope.
