The Square House by MODO Architecture & Design
The Square house by MODO architectures and design situated near the seaside and in the locality of the north side of port Mahon in Menorca. The size of the house is 180 sqm.
The locality where the house is situated is very peaceful, and featured by the presence of several standalone houses chiefly built by the small cubic blocks.
The site where the house was built is situated between two houses. So the architectures of the house have to built it in such way so that the house remain private in respect of neighbors and at the same time residents can get sea-view from their house. It seems to be complex geometry, to keep the house private from the immediate neighbors.
The north part of the house is closed on and opens broad to the south direction; it looks like a colossal complex figure, pierce by a “great eye”, catching the attractive views.
The volume is parted into two floors. The structure is sharply inclined from first floor to basement. The first floor hosts the, main entrance and bedrooms while the living room and the kitchen is housed in the basement area. The kitchen is made in such a way so that you can view sea while cooking. Natural stones are used to build this house.
The external part of this house is parted into unlike slopes to create private or open areas as per use.
