On a privileged plot with a steep slope, Fran Silvestre Arquitectos has designed an all-white dwelling that negotiates the dramatic change in topography. Titled ‘House in Benahavís’, the property is located in ‘La Zagaleta’ — a development near Marbella on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol. In order to take advantage of the site’s views, the home’s primary living accommodation is found on the upper level, which is supported by a single volume set at a perpendicular angle to the slope.
This volume contains the home’s technical and service areas and allows residents to descend to the lower level, which includes a terrace and a swimming pool that stretches out into the garden. The basement also accommodates a garage, a large storage area, steam and locker rooms, and a bedroom. upstairs, Fran Silvestre Arquitectos has positioned the living spaces and sleeping accommodation to the south-west, with floor-to-ceiling windows and a covered terrace taking advantage of the surrounding landscape.
Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the house, a multi-purpose room and two offices are illuminated by northern light. The four bedrooms, including the master bedroom, each have adjoining bathrooms positioned at the center of the plan and illuminated by skylights.
