Villa on the water

The client, who is from the Netherlands, asked for the house and the swimming pool to be visually connected to the water of the Mar Menor lagoon. The channel and the surrounding areas are very dutch in character, and connects the Mar Menor with the Mediterranean Sea.

There is a 3 metre cantilever over the outside terrace which protects against the low afternoon and which mediates between the inside and the outside. The family spends most of their time on one of the three outside terraces, depending on the time of day and the season.

The house has a double height entrance hall with operable windows at the top to allow for climate control. Even in the hot summers, using the prevailing winds from the sea, the air conditioning is very rarely needed.

There are large aluminium sliding gates out to the canal path, to allow a direct visual connection between the pool and the canal.
