150 Best Minimalist House Ideas (2014)

8x8 House

Architect: Marià Castelló

Location: Formentera, Spain

Photography: Lourdes Grivé, EPDSE

This project consisted of the extension of an existing house located on the western side of the Spanish island Formentera. The rustic landscape guided the design. A new annex is composed of two sections. There is a spacious, public living room and a kitchen separated by sliding panels. A more private section includes an office, a bedroom, and a bathroom.

The new construction is accessible through a deck, which is protected from the strong sunlight by an L-shaped canopy. The canopy is made of square steel tubing painted white to match the house.

Add texture if a bathroom seems too cold or sterile. Use wood to create a more natural and inviting feeling, but don’t overdo it—doing so would interfere with a clean look.
