The PREMIUM COLLECTION concept is part of a new communication strategy of the firm PORCELANOSA, which includes the edition of a special premium catalogue and the making of the Premium House for the Cersaie Fair 2015.
Its unique location, at the top of a hill, over a Cove of turquoise water, determines this project. A sequence of white concrete walls soar in different directions, by compressing and expanding the Visual, generating multiple scenes. The vertical planes are limited by long horizontal cantilevers, which are extended heading out to the sea.
The house is rooted to the ground and acquires a tectonic character, thus merging into the landscape.
Wide glass panes encloses the stone walls, allowing total transparency between the mountain and the valley and emphasising the massiveness of the walls.
The cultural and physical environment was a leading thread for the process of designing this house in Cala Na Xemena, Ibiza: the light, a landscape of rocks and junipers, and the cliffs outlined on the sea.
AS A LINK ELEMENT
The project restores the roman schema by which the house is organized around a sequence of patios, that accompanying the route of access. This surrounding is embodied as a set of stone walls that structure the space, generating a hierarchical sequence of heights.
