Set in the city of Grazalema, Spain, the residence designed by the renowned studio Fran Silvestre Arquitectos will stand out from the regular houses of the region.
The city’s mountain range creates the wall to high humid winds that come from Atlantic Ocean. Thanks to that, this part of Spain has one of the highest rainfall index from all Iberian peninsula. The proposal drawn by Fran Silvestre’s practice would be located on a large plot with an excellent view to the landscape from Sierra Nevada to African coast. Standing away from the white houses known in the area, the project reminds the cave-like structure, “carved by the rain and time in shades of grey stones that exist in the area,” as the architects explain. Planned as a sinuous building with a huge space, it is supposed to frame seven tiered gardens, from which it took its name – ‘House of Seven Gardens‘.
