“At the centre of the Castellon Hills, a breeze away from the Mediterranean Sea lies a small private road leading to an immensity of land that serves as a large earthy canvas full of almond and olive trees. This area and the many medieval villages surrounding it, could easily be mistaken for a Spanish Tuscany.  At the center of it all, lies the sculpture. A sculpture designed by the Dutch artist Xander Spronken. A sculpture? Not quite... A house? Not exactly... This Spanish retreat is the culmination of both. It greets you with its host of 6-meter high concrete pillars that do not loom so much as they soar.


A sculpture that has no rhythm but with details inspired by the ancient Fibonacci sequence.  Fifty-three concrete pillars carry a wooden roof that weighs down on you bringing back a sensation of earthing and rooting.”
