This Minimalist House is Another Home-Run for Stripped-Back Architecture Firm

Fran Silvestre Arquitectos are a firm whose signature style couldn’t be more recognisable. We saw it previously with the House Between the Pines, and we’re seeing it here in their new residential project: Breeze House.

Basking in the mediterranean climes of Castellón, Spain, the house is another classic Fran Silvestre construction: sweeping walls of minimalism white; extended oblong volumes stacked and extended in geometric formations; floor to ceiling windows; daringly minimalist interiors; and the remarkable play of light inside that all these factors invite.

It’s unmistakably minimalist. We thought we could only interview them this time around in a similar fashion.

TP: White or black?
FSA:
White is the colour of vernacular architecture. Traditionally, our ancestors used to whitewash the walls to protect the houses from Mediterranean weather, as well as for cleaning and disinfection.

TP: Houses, or hotels?
FSA:
It’s the same for us.

TP: Beachhouse or lakehouse?
FSA:
Both, as long as possible.

TP: Home or away?
FSA:
Depends on the company.

TP: Interiors or exteriors?
FSA:
We are interested in continuity spaces so the relationship between the interior and exterior is essential in our projects.
