The Spanish firm was the brain of a holiday home in Maresme, southeast Spain, that showcases in the best way possible the coastal mountain-range views. Today our blog brings you the project of the great Spanish Holiday Home.

According to Yolanda López, the co-founder of the studio, the client had a specific Scandinavian taste and he wanted to create a comfortable but at the same time luxurious and sophisticated holiday home. One of the main requires was that the home needed to be friends and family oriented.
At the right to the garage and guesthouse, it sits the main house that incorporates a flat roof at the first-floor level. The architects changed the internal layout of the existing space since 1980. The main spaces of the house are mainly open spaces with large sliding doors connected by long corridors on each floor.
The wide windows on the ground floor and neutral materials provide the bond between the interiors and exteriors of the house. The corridors provide straight lines through the entire building and on the ground floor opens up to a large terrace and pool through sliding glass doors.
“We brought life into the courtyard with this huge olive tree, so there is always a connection to the surrounding nature,” said Yuste López.
The distinct areas of the house are brought together by the unique and powerful cement floor and limited palette of neutral but highly luxurious materials. The living room features a pale grey sandstone wall and a custom made wall unit in tobacco wood. The adjacent dining room features a dark lacquered table and brass-legged chairs. All of this incredible pieces are underneath a set of Tom Dixon‘s pendant lamps.
The kitchen is between two sliding doors that separate the eat-in kitchen at the front of the house from a bathroom and auxiliary kitchen in the rear. In the middle of the space, there is a large island that contains a cooking top and informal dining area.
“Everything is reduced to a very limited color range, different materials that appear almost the same for a very minimalist, highly integrated look,” said Yuste López. “Even the cement floor was mixed with pigments to create a slightly lighter shade of brown than the stone worktops, and it was given a satin finish to delicately reflect the light streaming in from outside.”
On the upstairs level, the master bedroom features a grey sandstone wall panel. The ceilings are on walnut slatted with vertical wooden slats tipped with brass that go down one of the sections of the wall. The bathroom is behind a large wooden sliding door and the main piece of that area is a large free-standing washbasin. Tinted doors give privacy to the private areas of the room.
On the children’s room, the creators selected a chunky modular sofa table in primary colors of the children’s favorite football teams. In the bathroom, the main color is a bright green used in a sink made of a soft foam.
