Spain-based architecture office Fran Silvestre Arquitectos designed a penthouse in the Costa Blanca region of the Mediterranean Sea. The penthouse, which was brought to a modern appearance with the renovation of the interiors, consists of two floors spread over 112 sqm. Functional layouts between the floors are made considering the use of the house in daytime and nighttime. The main floor, which includes the units mostly used during the day, consists of a single space covering the living area and the kitchen designed with the sea view. The upper floor houses a terrace opening onto the sea, with a bedroom, bathroom and a very large dressing room. While the bedroom has a white color, the bathroom is contrasted using black marble. In addition to the bedroom and terrace, the bathroom also establishes a transparent relationship with the landscape. In the penthouse where different separating elements are preferred instead of walls, sculptural natural stone stairs and furniture are used as separators. With its minimal color and material palette, recessed furniture, sliding doors and lighting solutions, it created a truly plain atmosphere throughout the apartment. In the design enriched with natural stone elements in the contrast of black and white colors, the main design decision was to increase the landscape relationship with the sea.
