Punta Ballena, Uruguay
Located on the beachfront of Punta Ballena, the house rises on three levels to reach the maximum height possible and get the best views of the surrounding sea and forest.
The ground floor includes a large living area facing north, connected to a deck with a grill and the pool –that acts as a mirror– which is the center of the house. The kid’s rooms are also annexed to this open space, having direct access to the outside. The first floor has a privileged view and houses the kitchen, living-dining room, and a master suite. The layout organizes everything in a linear and comfortable space connected to a terrace that frames the fantastic views of Punta Ballena. The playroom, movie theater, and wine cellar are accommodated in the basement.
Overlooking the ocean, the rooftop has the best views. Surrounded by plants and equipped with a large U-shaped bench made of exposed concrete that encloses a fireplace, the space is ideal for enjoying both night and day.
The modern and unadorned architecture, simple but refined, features high-quality details and materials in all spaces, creating an elegant and contemporary home.
