Located in a suburban urbanisation of private villas of Marbella, in the south of Spain, Gus Wüstemann Architects designed Los Limoneros—a spectacular family home as well as guest rooms for visiting friends. Measuring a total of 480 m2 inside area, this is a grand design. The architects explain:
The idea was to create a huge garden with large covered outside spaces, giving some shade when needed, where you could live outside day and night, all year long. At the same time, we needed to create the necessary privacy towards the neighbouring buildings, so you could live outside without being exposed.
On the periphery of this luxurious residence, we get an idea of the beautiful use of space. For instance, we find a still water pond with waterfall, herb garden, kitchen, BBQ lounge, and swimming pool. Meanwhile, the first floor features the bedrooms, family lounge and Yoga terrace, where a patio with a perforated stone façade filters the natural light into the rooms, resulting in one of the most striking elements of the house.
Interestingly, there are no windows or openings directly to the outside, giving the appearance that the house is a proud white cubic construction under the deep blue sky. Outstanding.
