Welcome to an intriguing looking residence designed by Fuses i Viader and located in Cologne, Spain. According to the architects, Casa de Verano is located at the bottom of the plot to facilitate the proximity to the beach and is cleverly separated from the street and neighbors. Two copper-roofed wings are connected in a central point where the entrance and the stairs to the ground floor can also be found. With the location at the bottom of the plot, the building’s roof becomes the fifth facade of the house, and perhaps most important one, being visible from the entrance. All the rooms have sea views, which was a priority when planning the project. The master bedroom is the closest to the beach and also secluded from the rest of the house. The focal point of the residence is a modern living room. This space has a generous glazing, overlooking the surrounding landscape. The ground floor contains the offices, gymnasium, sauna and wine cellar. Two garages were built outside the house: one connected to the summer kitchen and the other as an extension of the gym and guest bedroom. Find the architecture of this residence inspiring?
The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
