Minimalist designed residence in Spain: House in Ontinyent

House in Ontinyent-Borja Garcia-00-1 Kindesign

House in Ontinyent is a modern minimalist design by Spanish architect Borja García, located in Calle Músico Vert, Ontinyent, Valencia, Spain. The core of the project is a large open space on the ground floor and a sculptural staircase made of concrete that guide visitors to the upper floors. The materials, with an absolute use of white, are always naked and honest. The basement, a large open space between concrete walls, connect the 5,920 square foot (550 square meters) house with the pool. The pool, built in white concrete, represents a large floating water surface.

We are in the historic heart of Ontinyent (Valencia), in a old textiles factory now converted into the headquarters of the outdoor furniture manufacturer Gandia Blasco. The aim of the project is to integrate new residential activity into the existing building. For this reason the house is proposed as an extension of modulation and structural system of the old building.

The house is located between party walls with dimensions of 22×7 meters and has five levels constructed. The distribution is solved with a simple band diagram that goes through the house drawing the small spaces (bathrooms, laundry, toilets, etc.). The rest of stays overturn both facades leaving the central area of the building reserved for the concrete stairway.

The ground floor has some social spaces that ends into a vertical space chaired by a huge mural with a visual overview from the history of the company. All materials selection has been carefully choose to ensure the coherence between the project and the company Gandia Blasco. The absolute present throughout the work and the nude and matte treatment complete the imagery projected by the brand through its products.

Finally, a white concrete pool that encloses a water box suspended inside. The proportions of the pool dialogue with the rear facade. Also the access stairway is a continuation of the system used inside the project.

The overall result is a elemental house in its design and its realization but with a powerful constructive solution that gives the project a strong identity and character.
