Valencia-based architecture firm Fran Silvestre Arquitectos has designed a private home with shifted volumes to expand views to its surrounding in Sotogrande, Cádiz, Spain.

Named Villa 95, the three-story home is comprised of three main volumes that are rotated towards the forest to grasp different vistas. 

While the main volume contains main functions, upper volume is dedicated to more private spaces like bedrooms.

A separate volume in front is dedicated to an open swimming pool and deck, acting like a private terrace.

Fran Silvestre Arquitectos created the expressive nature of this three-story house to be "a continuous movement that suggests, between its different rooms, a walkway from where to explore the landscape that expands in front of it."

The exterior morphology is arranged with the intention of taking full advantage of the buildability of its plot. Through its long diagonal, the pieces seem to connect only by their vertexes, but the interior is intertwined and in constant communication.

The upper floor opens onto a large balcony: roof of the middle piece and whose limits expand in both directions; to the outside, towards the pool, and to the inside of the plot up to the limits of the upper level. 

Through its configuration of three uninterrupted succession of spaces, the structure lures the eye into following its shape; an almost playful figure that immediately assumes and suggests the distinctive identity of the house.
