Minimalist House On The Rocks by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

House on the Rocks or “House on the Slope of a Castle” as it was called is a modern, minimalist home located in Ayora near Valencia. This single family residence was designed to “integrate into the environment” and the designers were Fran Silvestre Arquitectos.

This house is located in an unique landscape, the result of a natural growth, against the stunning natural backdrop. It is linear, geometric and white, an aspect that creates a clean design. Being set in a rocky mountainside plot the architects had a great challenge in front of them, they had to integrate it in its environment. The house is conceived as a volume which uses white lime and a sense of constructive continuity.

The architects had three demands from the owners and these were to stick to the available budget, to give them privacy and sun washed interiors. This three-storey home was designed with a void that acted as a divider and that is adjacent to the skylight, having a lot of natural light come in.

This unique house hosts a cellar on the ground floor, children’s bedroom and bathroom on the first floor and the master bedroom on the upper level, which has gorgeous views of the Valley of Ayora. Furthermore on the last floor you can also find an open floor kitchen with a living and dining area and a study.

The House on the Rocks is a superb residence that makes a statement. It is modern, minimalist and, of course, unique.
