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. Photography by Diego Opazo.
