Salobreña, Andalusia, Spain
Called “The House on the Cliff”, this striking hillside residence was designed by architects Pablo Gil and Jaime Bartolomé of GilBartolomé Architects for a young couple in Salobreña, Andalusia, Spain. Built into the mountainside, the residence showcases a wavy zinc-covered roof with walls of windows, private balconies and a large entertaining terrace with swimming pool. The interiors capture uninterrupted views of the Mediterranean Sea. Built in 2015, the home is now available to rent on Airbnb as “Casa Acantilado.”
GilBartolomé Architects: This house is a private commission made by a young couple who chose a difficult plot on a hill with an inclination of 42 degrees, in front of the Mediterranean Sea with breathtaking views. The task has been to integrate the house within the magnificent landscape that surrounds it and to direct the livable spaces towards the sea. It has also been about working with an extremely tight budget, a complex site and ambitious ideas both from the client and the architect.
