Design of a villa for a high-end neighborhood near Marbella in Southern Spain. The villa is located in a privileged area with views to the sea. The facade is exploded, producing an ‘inverted courtyard’ that frees the vertical surfaces and naturally ventilates the interior. The outer facade is composed by translucent panels that protect the privacy and allow the view to the landscape from the inverted courtyard.
