House On The Rocks26. Aug2011

TAGS: house

Built in Valencia, Spain, the House on the Rocks or how the architects call it - House on the Slope of a Castle - is a beautiful example of adaptation on the existing terrain and surroundings while respecting the dweller's requests.

With a minimalist design (both exterior and interior) but with clever details that enhance the experience of living (such as the slight inclination of the exterior walls which allows you to see the lateral views without opening the windows) the house manages to solve all three factors that had to be taken in account while the architects designed it: privacy, sun washed interiors and to stay within the available budget.
