In the south of Spain, POLO Architects has interpreted the hacienda feeling in an almost lyrical way. A spacious villa was designed according to a playful concept of orientation and volumetry. The house blends into the landscape almost invisibly and rests with its back against the wind. The building makes an embracing gesture around a central patio.


NATURAL LEVELING


The topology of the terraces forms the basis of the building. The natural leveling establishes an initial rhythm, while the building adopts the existing walls of the terrain. Between these walls arises a house that is conceived as a merger between a traditional castle and a contemporary Spanish hacienda.


TRADITION MEETS INNOVATION


The location, orientation, and use of materials fades the line between inside and outside, resulting in a house that fully embraces the environment it’s surrounded by. Careful detailing in combination with the use of local, honest, and robust materials results in a building where tradition and innovation come together.
