House in Sotogrande is a project designed by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos, located in front of the Sotogrande’s golf course, the house proposes to inhabit the shade generated between the ground floor plan and the roof. A large cantilever allows to stop the intense sun of Cádiz and to protect from the abundant rains of the area of the Sierra de Grazalema.
Deep inside there is a wooden body that gives privacy to the rooms and provides the desired warmth. Thus, four limits appear: the plane, the shadow, the glass that allows the interior to be climatized, and finally, the wood one.

House in the lake is a project designed by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos. Located in the PGA golf course, in Girona, the house seeks the best views over the place where it is set.
