Fran Silvestre presents his latest project Casa Balint to Clerkenwell Design Week 2015. The talk will take place in the Clerkenwell Showroom, 93-99 Goswell Road, EC1V 7EY London on 21st May.

Architect Fran Silvestre’s unmistakable style is portrayed in a project which started with the aim of integrating a modern-styled house into the peculiar topography of a golf course located in the vicinity of the luminous city of Valencia and has been created from top to bottom using Porcelanosa products.

The elliptical shape of the building, an aerodynamic volume achieved by means of a continuous façade by Krion® solid surface Snow White, has a simple curve that doesn’t require thermoforming to adapt to the geometry of the piece.

White is the colour that completely dominates the indoor and outdoor of the house, only disrupted by the gleaming turquoise of the swimming pool, achieved by means of the mosaics from Porcelanosa. The different green tones in the garden and the surrounding vegetation give an air of solemnity to the project, which has been selected as one of the five finalists in the 2015 Archdaily “Building of the Year Awards. Houses”.

The space is 772 square metres and it has been put together on three floors, which are distributed around an open central area, as a patio, covered by a skylight which lets the sunlight go through the house. On the top floor one can find the bedrooms, whereas on the ground floor there is the kitchen, and a wide dining-room can also be found making its way out to the garden. Last, but not least, the basement connects with the patio, working the latter as an important element to enclose the space.

The natural materials, present in the flooring of the house, overlap the different spaces of the Balint house. The unique design together with materials used create carpets of light which transform the inside of the house as the hours go by.

Fran Silvestre will be at Porcelanosa Clerkenwell explaining in-depth the techniques used in the project and his inspiration behind the project.
