This beautiful minimalist house is located on the Spanish Island of Formentera. Designed and built by Maria Castello Martinez for himself as a work studio and home; the building is a mere 12 x 12 square meters. The structure sits perfectly in the natural and rugged terrain- where a traditional stone wall encloses the space.
The house and studio is separated by a core structure which holds a library, filing cabinets, the bathroom, kitchen and some storage cupboards. Two Iroko wooden sliding panels are used to close off certain areas and to create privacy. The construction and thoughtful design of this piece of modern architecture allows for it to sit in perfect harmony with the natural environment.
