Casa PMX-02 designed by QBO3 Arquitectos, a residential complex with a fluid orthogonal outline is a visual treat.

Casa PMX-02 is part of a private family residential complex located at the foot of a hill in the Palmares Valley. In contrast to the PMX01 project, which is located a few steps away, this residence had to reflect a more sober character but at the same time maintain the dynamism that prevails in the architectural complex in which it is located. The outlines of the design became more orthogonal and two large rectangular volumes, which overlap in the form of a cross, contain the largest number of spaces in this residence that, despite its large scale, feels compact.

Upon entering the house, orthogonality begins to disappear to give way to more sensual lines led by a curved staircase bathed in overhead light from an opening on the roof. This staircase ends in the hall of the master bedroom, the only apartment on the second level that also contains its own living room and terrace. The main social area enjoys a double height illuminated by large windows that open onto the terrace and the garden looking towards the mountains to the west and part of the valley. In this same space we enjoy an internal balcony that gives continuity to the curvature of the staircase, a kind of semicircle that frames 3 large onyx lamps that become protagonists of the space at night. A play area and display space for a collector’s car complete this space.

The main dining room and the kitchen are simply separated by a dividing wall that ensures privacy but does not interrupt the continuity of the spaces. From the kitchen, we can go out to a large family terrace to which 2 secondary bedrooms also have direct access, a large open space ideal for more informal activities. On the lower level, which is partially underground, are the service areas and the main garage.
