Casa Helena is a very special house that arises from teamwork and full involvement of our clients, a dream materialized in exposed concrete and natural stone. Next to the port of Jávea and surrounded by native pines, Casa Helena, enjoys a privileged situation with views to the sea in a quiet area that allows the walk to the beach and port area. Of simple geometry and with a very horizontal volume, the floors made of textured exposed concrete seem to fly over the large glass panels with a minimalist aesthetic, and where the carpentry seems not to exist, being completely hidden. This volume of exposed concrete and glass lays down on a base of natural limestone, extracted from the excavation itself. It is a more solid volume than the previous one and leaving a stamp of tradition in the home. With very Mediterranean customs, our clients wanted a home with open spaces, open to the outside, which allows them to enjoy and interact with family and friends from different points in the house without losing their privacy and always being able to enjoy the sea views. Exposed concrete has been treated with special care in this project, since we wanted to achieve a naturalized gray finish colour, but with warm tones in tune with the shade of the natural stone of the place. To achieve it, we have worked the concrete with a perfect dosage of fine aggregates from the excavation itself, which has allowed us to have as a result a concrete that moves away from the cold grays typical of this material to approach a more cozy and comfortable finish. The chosen texture has also helped us achieve our perfect finish, thanks to a formwork based on high-density American wood slats and an exquisite and meticulous execution by the contractor, in such a way that the details of each grain of the wood have been stamped to the concrete, forever.
