A Beach House signed Laura Ortín

The restyling of the residence, built in the Spanish city of Alicante, has plywood-clad interiors and a panoramic corner window that overlooks a nearby watchtower. The owners have commissioned architect Laura Ortín, a studio from Murcia, to design a two-story extension dedicated to children and grandchildren.

The former port on the Mediterranean coast is today a very popular tourist destination and in recent decades has undergone extensive modernization to cope with the growing number of seasonal visitors.

The extension is supported by the load-bearing walls of the lower level and has a metal structure covered in thermally insulated panels. The exterior is finished in a shade influenced by wind turbines that aims to help it blend with the sky. The residence on two levels is reached by a dedicated staircase on one side of the front courtyard and has an upper corner floor that is twisted and facing the 16th century watchtower.

The lower level contains a living room and a kitchen located at the front which opens onto its terrace. A staircase next to this space climbs onto a mezzanine that provides an additional common space with access to the rear roof terrace. Beyond the staircase is a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, a bathroom and a master bedroom with a private bathroom hidden behind the opaque glass doors.
