Threading between trees in a Spanish forest, this ring-shaped residence is the second completed Solo House, a series of dream holiday homes designed by leading architects for French developer Christian Bourdais.
Brussels-based Office Kersten Geers David Van Severen designed the property for the development in the mountainous region of Matarraña (Teruel), where Bourdais is planning to eventually build 15 houses and a hotel for the Solo Houses project.
The first of the Solo Houses to be completed was a symmetrical concrete residence by Chilean studio Pezo Von Ellrichshausen.
The house designed by the Belgian firm occupies a plot on top of a plateau, which provides a panoramic view of the surrounding forest and landscape.
"Since the scenery is so impressive, we felt architecture should be invisible, merely emphasising the natural qualities of the surroundings," said the architects.
