A SPANISH architect has received praise for his Norway-inspired and totally white house, lodged like an iceberg in the foothills Alicante’s mountains.
The impressive Oslo House, surrounded by pine trees, is the creative genius of Ramon Esteve who aimed to bring a refreshing hint of cool Nordic style to Spain’s hot and dusty sierras.
Dubbed ‘the concrete block’, the property is made up of two overlapping spaces set back from one another to draw in optimum daylight and ventilation.
Designed to play with light and shadow as the sun moves at varying points of the day, gaps in the floor slabs allow daylight to flood through the building.
The spacious living room, furnished in white like all the rooms in the house, sweeps out towards the infinity pool offering breathtaking sea views. Just be careful not to spill your coffee on the white sofas!
