Casa Cubo: Hillside refuge that floats above its landscape

Casa Cubo-Octavio Mestre-01-1 Kindesign

Casa Cubo is a modern hillside refuge designed by architect Octavio Mestre, whose project concept was inspired by Le Corbusier, located in Girona, Spain. Upon arrival to this fabulous home, the building is a cubic volume that appears to float. A refuge for a family, the hillside was used to create a series of structured terraces surrounded by lush landscaping. The bottoms are lined with rusty Corten steel to mask them on the ground, and the house reads like a white cube overlooking the landscape nestled between the pines. The ground floor has a reverse order, housing the bedrooms to allow for privacy. The top floor has the lounging spaces to allow for views of the landscape.

The interiors of the home offer simplicity, not only in the distribution of spaces, but in selecting a minimal palette of materials, including maple wood. A beautiful staircase houses a wall of books climbing up the entire length. Maple wood flooring is seen throughout except for the kitchen where quartzite flooring extends out to the adjoining terrace, creating a clear connection between indoors and out. Stage decorator Anaí Ibarra, The Vintagelab, added final touches to the clean concept by infusing splashes of rich hues in the textiles and accessories, helping to revitalize the cool and comfortable atmosphere of the residence.
