VILLA IN ANDALUCIA (Spain) by McLean Quinlan Architects

The design strategy for this new build villa was to create an exemplary building for the 21st century.
The site occupies a panoramic south west facing sweep of embankment, with impressive views to the Mediterranean, Rock of Gibraltar and Serranía de Ronda.
Landscaping was key to the concept for this dramatic site and the combination of visual, solar and centrifugal influences inherent in the landscape created a natural orientation for the building.
These layers defined both shade and space from which to enjoy the Andalucian sunlight, providing tantalising glimpses of the view beyond and shaping tranquil spaces for the inhabitants.
The effect of shadow and water in an Arabian garden was both a practical and metaphoric influence on the design of the whole building.
