Casa Abierta ☯ Fab Beach House ☯ is as a shelter from the city for family and friends: an open house. Punta Rubia, in the northeast Uruguayan coastline, is a small village amidst sand dunes. With only few houses dispersed among the landscape, it is still hard to find streets, to know where your plot starts or ends, and who your neighbours will be... After all it’s only about wild ocean, endless beaches and beautiful forests. The house stands on a raised wooden structure, which houses the entrance and stairs to the living quarters on level +2.00 m. By raising the ground level up to two meters, large and open views to the ocean and the surrounding landscape will remain forever giving the feeling of an implanted lighthouse. The interior of the first level is designed as a big integrated room warmed up by a beautiful chimney. This large space is divided by different flooring: wood boards for the living area, black & white tiles for the kitchen, and a multi-level platform that works as the interface between the lower and upper level, and serves as a hang-out point to enjoy reading, sunset or a glass of wine. The upper level is organised in two rooms -a double room and a bunk bedroom (that has an extra mattress). Both rooms have direct access to a open deck-terrace. The rooftop is also accessible from the terrace offering 360° stunning views. The house is powered by electricity, but we use solar energy to heat water. The water comes from a natural well, so we ask our guests to make a wise and sensible use of resources. We also separate our trash and have a compost allocated in the garden. Furniture has been specially built for the house with local materials and by local artisans. Lighting has been designed to create diverse moods (there is even a dimmer!) The kitchen has everything you to cook: electric oven, natural gas burners, dishwasher and fridge. Downstairs in the storage there is a second fridge + freezer, so you just need to go shopping once a week.
