Apartment Torremuelle by Estudio Primitivo González: a horizontal line separates two dense volumes: sea and sky

The sea and the sky are like two heavy volumes that are divided by a horizontal line. This concept was then adopted by Estudio Primitivo González into the architectural space, creating a room framed by the sea under the project Apartment Torremuelle.

The building where the apartment is located adopts the traditional architectural style of the Costa del Sol in the 1970s. When people enter the apartment, they will feel a strong contrast, because it is completely different from other spaces in the building.

Through the fancy railings and peeling paint, the simple room draws people’s attention to the distant horizon. Ortega y Gasset once said, “The imaginary island is surrounded by reality… The walls of reality must suddenly end, allowing people to quickly fall into the illusion of art. However, there is also a buffer between the two, and the picture frame plays this role.”

In this Apartment Torremuelle by Estudio Primitivo González, the building is a framework that allows people to look at art, and the sea is the artwork in the frame. In addition, there is a break in the frame that separates the indoor space from the outdoor terrace.

The linoleum floor has a warm texture and can reduce noise. Together with the washboard on the ceiling and high-efficiency window frames, it creates a quiet place in the building.

The gray interior contrasts sharply with the bright exterior environment. The designer replaced the original partition wall in the interior with a curtain track, which snaked through the ceiling.

When the curtain is pulled to different positions, it can form a completely different space effect, forming a space experience far exceeding 50 square meters. Here, people can get a spacious living room, a private bedroom, a guest room, a dining room, etc.

The translucent fabric interacts with the space, forming different zones and atmospheres. The changing Mediterranean sunlight softly illuminates the interior space through the curtains.

The project completely breaks with the environment in which it is located, and cuts off external sounds and shifts its attention to the scenery as if it is somewhere else.
