Nestled on the hillside in Spain’s north coast, Casa Q is a grand achievement in contemporary design. Composed of a series of offset, asymmetrical rectangular sections, Casa Q is a black obelisk in Norte De Espana. The home rests on a wood-slatted patio overlooking a pool and the town below. Inside, the home that appears to have few windows is surprisingly bright, as large skylights add to it’s architectural mystique.
Casa Q finished construction in May of 2009, as built with the help of Egitur S.L. and Satie Arquitectos S.L. Modern chairs by Bertoia and tables by Saarinen would work great on the poolside patio, while the interior could use a bit of what the home doesn’t feature naturally– color. While cool and sparse could certainly work in this design’s interior, a shag rug, a sectional sofa and colorful accents could make this house a home. See the way those three lights pop on the wood patio in the image above? That’s the kind of life that should be nurtured with the furnishings within. [more at plataforma arquitectura (spanish)]
