A house reveals the sharp contrast between cement and brick

Horma has designed a project in Spain that plays on refined formal and chromatic contrasts.

In the city of Sagunto, 25 km northeast of Valencia, Horma - estudio de arquitectura has created a project whose distinguishing feature is the curved line. The red brick plinth, meticulously positioned on the façade and on the entrance to the home, supports the curved volume of smooth white cement which houses the first floor and the roof.

The façade elegantly reveals the chromatic and formal contrast, characterised by openings that allow natural light to filter into well-defined points of the environment. Inside, the home does not obey any set rules: in the open space, the living room, dining room and kitchen interact in a fluid, dynamic way. The staircase leads up to the upper level, where the sleeping area is located, and finally to the roof, where a swimming pool in a protected niche provides pleasant moments of relaxation.
