Ok, that’s enough for romantic. Oh, wait, no, let’s continue these expansive ocean views.
At the very edge of the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, where all the ships from the Mediterranean pass by as they head off into the Atlantic, the house sits as if it were a jetty facing out to sea. You probably already moved to Cadiz, Spain, where architect Alberto Campo Baeza created an expansive piece of landscape architecture. Baeza is known for creating beautiful, awe-inspiring residences, but he may have outdone himself with this one. It’s like you can go “to infinity and beyond…” without even leaving the house! Hat’s off to you, Mr. Baeza, that’s one small step for architecture, one giant leap for mankind!
The upper horizontal plane with its swimming pool becomes the protagonist of the space with the living area underneath this platform. The entire structure was built from travertine stone, which the architect describes as a reference to the Roman heritage. The stone walls above and behind the stony platform are used as a protection from strong winds.
