Spanish firm Fran Silvestre Arquitectos has recently designed a modern house located in a residential area in the city of Valencia in Spain called the Atrium House.
The inspiration behind the design is the concept of an atrium as the main entrance of a house. Silvestre, the architect behind the construction, has designed the house with light and space as the main themes. The residence is laid out, encompassing a central courtyard while the main living spaces surround the open space in the middle.
The home's main living quarters that wrap around the courtyard feature ceiling-to-floor glass panels that invite the exterior space into the interior space, providing a constant flow and connection to the inner space and nature. The building is L-shaped; while some rooms are able to view the outdoor swimming pool, other spaces allow natural light to come into the lower levels of the building.
