Juncal and Rodney House, designed intertwined with its setting in Spain, is positioned against the mountain and sea view on the horizon in the Mediterranean. Consisting of three bedrooms and a two-story common area, the project is positioned on a steeply sloping land with a view. The north-south facing horizontal volume is separated from the neighboring plot by a masonry wall. These walls, shaped with local stones, transformed the land into a large terrace. The stone walls parallel to the entrance of the house are connected to each other by a central courtyard that divides the volume into two parts and offers a view of the rocks left after the excavations on the plot. The stairs overlooking the garden in this section emphasize the division of the house into two. Although the main volume is connected to a stone retaining wall, the courtyard allows light to enter and creates visual perspectives between the two parts of the house. The design concept has been further enriched with consoled balconies and terraces, ensuring a spatial continuity in the project that leads to the horizon view. A design concept that opens completely to the sea is adopted in the lower part of the building, which is designed freely with its upper floors, terraces and balconies. The steep geography of the region, rocky floors, sky and sea were the elements that shaped the design.
