This beautiful contemporary residence in Spain was designed by McLean Quinlan, an architecture practice from London. The site on which the house is built occupies a sweep of embankment, offering gorgeous views of the Mediterranean, the Serrania de Ronda and the Rock of Gibraltar. The owners and their guests have seven bedroom suites to choose from. These suites are set in three different pavilions which are separated by stone terraces, gardens and pools of water, but which are also linked to ensure an easy transition between them.
After taking into account important factors like the landscape and the climate of the area (Andalusia), the architects gave a very natural orientation to the building, thus creating a harmonious dialogue between the villa and its surroundings. Consisting of a series of parallel layers, the house is a beautiful 21st century building that acts like a portal between the natural and the man-made world.
