The lower level holds the spacious painting studio that is filled with natural light bedrooms and other utility spaces. Then there is the roof with its minimal terrace small garden and a splendid pool that allows the homeowner to take the very best views that Gaucin has to offer. A central atrium and additional patio bring light into the double height studio where there is ample wall space to display all the latest creations of Joseba Zabaleta.
Each outdoor space seems like a continuation of the interior and a neutral color palette crafted using white painted gypsum wall board adds to this cheerful and breezy ambiance. There is no lack of natural light indoors as skylights and large windows make their presence felt in every room.
The double height living area along with kitchen and dining on the lower level has a slanted ceiling even as the bedrooms and private spaces snugly sit on the top floor. White is the color of choice here as the neutral color palette is only broken up the artwork on the walls and warm wooden surfaces.
Get past the striking rammed earth walls at the entrance and you see a large and beautiful living space that feels even more airy thanks to the sixteen foot high ceiling. Kitchen and dining room sit on one side of this grand living area along with the study spaces while the master bedroom wing is place on the other side.
The stone wall offers much more than support to the cantilevered structure as it divides the home into social and private spaces even as concrete pillars offer further support. With an elevated design the house gives those inside a smart view of the river from almost every level inside.
