The Sotogrande House by Francisco Cortina & Ricardo Legorreta

In the very south of Spain we find Sotogrande, Andalusia. This most southern part of Europe is home to beautiful weather, blue seas and a rich variety of architecture. The Sotogrande House by architect Francisco Cortina  and interior design Legorreta + Legorreta is a very nice example.

The house was designed around a central courtyard to house the inner life and a window overlooking the sea. Thanks to the excellent climate of southern Spain have circulations could be open, so that all rooms enjoy the patio. The outdoor gardens were recreated with vegetation of the area, such as olive groves and arid climate, on a yellow ground equal to the one used at the plant in Seville bullring.
