Set in a 1950s building in the village of Garraf, Little Beach House Barcelona is a private members’ club on the Mediterranean beachfront, boasting 17 rooms, a bar, a restaurant, a rooftop, an outdoor Cowshed Spa, sun loungers and oper air activities.
This house by Architecture Saville Isaacs is designed to maximise the spectacular Avoca beachfront location with a variety of indoor and outdoor rooms in which to experience different aspects of beachside living.
Leaning on the rock of the mountain almost at the top of Cape Koutoulos, integrated to the wild landscape and made of earthy materials, this elongated luxury vacation home protected from the northern wind, overlooks the Western Cretan Sea towards the South.
A robust L-shaped wall made of stone serves as a continuation of the mountain and defines the arrangement of all the indoor spaces. Two clean volumes, one consisting of the living room, kitchen and dining room and the other consisting of the bedroom suites, are interconnected through a long semi-open living area, starting from the rock and ending on an elevated platform floating between the mountain and the sea, the sky and the earth.
