Villa Cubica is a bold concept for a large family villa on a steeply sloping site in La Zagaleta, which is recreational parkland, punctuated with villas.
Our concept is to marry the best of contemporary living with the traditions of Courtyard Haciendas and Andalusian White Hill Towns. The villa is conceived as a series of pure cubic forms with armatures reaching out into the landscape. Framed views and deep axes emphasise the dramatic perspectives. As a counterbalance, calm, protected and shaded exterior spaces are integrated around and below the arrival courtyard. The Villa is faced in warm limestone with inner surfaces of stucco, coloured tile and painted panels.
