Best Constructed Private Residence
About the project
YS + 2 House is a detached house inserted in a 1000m2 plot, located in Playa Paraíso, in the municipality of Adeje (Tenerife, Canary Islands). It is a very quiet urban area, whose main feature is its spectacular views towards the island of La Gomera. The house is 450m2 over three floors, a swimming pool and green spaces.
OTROestudio’s concept is two blind planes that protect and privatize an interior space without limits that devours the landscape and makes it own.
Under this concept, the exterior view is formed by a visible, large, reinforced concrete structure with geometric shapes and inclined lines that interrupt and move floating in the air, like a hard skin that shelters an interior space that breaks and dilutes its limits. Two irregular volumes that shelter an intimate and infinite patio.
The façade of the building is a kind of sculpture made up of two elements: an entrance porch that gives access to the plot and further back the blind volumes of the house.
