Can Durban 2 House, Spain by Bruno Erpicum
CAN DURBAN is a modern interpretation of a traditional « finca »…the architecture gives new proportions to the traditional components and allows wide and generous openings to the site : a platform surrounded by terraces levelled with antiek retaining stone walls and a 210° view to the campo punctuated by 3 sea views. The house is an articulation of several solid volumes which define, in between each other, an internal garden and a patio. The main volume contains the living area of the owner, the two secondary constructions welcome friends. The wide opening in the main façade allows the composition of the frameless glazing around the salon and the outside dining room, the two functions embrace the view, free from any vertical structure. The solid stone work of the retaining walls is used on the floorcovering and a plain oak carpentry achieves the equipment of this timeless house.
