The modular structure of the house ensured that it was easier to construct than a regular home and took up far less in terms of both time and resources. A polystyrene filling provides the vacation retreat with the necessary thermal insulation while the large sliding glass walls open it up toward the south.
The basement and the third level of the house contain private quarters while a brilliant pergola coupled with a fabulous painting studio and roof terrace make up the top level. With ample greenery both indoors and outside lavish outdoor deck spaces and breathtaking views of the mighty Mediterranean Sea in the distance this dashing and cozy villa offers a refreshing new take on contemporary design!

Located in the spectacular which is renowned across the globe for its magnificent views the ingenious home designed by Serrano Monjaraz Arquitectos is both versatile and eco-friendly. Raw casted cement granite and unpolished wood usher in the restrained industrial appeal even as a large deck and multiple balconies let you enjoy the picturesque outdoors.
A lovely outdoor deck and lounge extend the living area outside while the soothing interior is dominated by white and other gentle neutral shades. Despite using the traditional pitched roof the interior is contemporary at every turn and the high ceiling actually ends up adding to the majesty of the home.
The stairs act as the unifying feature ensuring that there is a sense of continuity from one floor to the next. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows and smart skylights have been used to usher in ample natural ventilation and drive out any dark corners.
While one of the barn structures faces the street and contains the public areas the other is carefully tucked behind it to keep the private quarters away from any prying eyes. Elegantly placed wooden slats allow plenty of natural light to filter through while ensuring that the home is not completely open towards the street.
Okay so the beautiful Floating House designed by architect Dymitr Malcew is not really a home located on the edge of a lake. In fact it is even better as it turns any lake or river into your personal retreat as you float your way to paradise!
