The Spiral House by ANTIREALITY, is a conceptual, experimental design of a coastal villa integrated within the rocky landscape. The main project idea is to challenge the standard way of approaching the functional layout of the house. The architectural program of the Spiral House is arranged along an extended corridor-like space where each of the rooms serves both as a passage and basic house function. The floor layout of the villa starts with the least private spaces, moves to the daytime functions, and ends with the master bedroom, topped by a viewing terrace located on the tower.
Interior space is divided by four types of wooden modules painted in four colors (pink, yellow, white, and purple). Each of the blocks contains a different house function that requires a higher level of privacy. All of that flexible rooms allow to pass through while being used by another household member. Wooden modules not only serve as rooms by themselves but also create a division/walls between open spaces. Walkthrough the entire structure is a journey through a different typology of spaces sunk within an external homogeneous structure. Colorful boxes, hidden under the surface of the house, create a subtle rainbow impression that can be experienced both from the inside and outside of the structure.
The name of the building refers to the geometry of the house based on the spiral shape of the main structure. The villa design is following the single line path, starts on the bottom of the cliff, wraps around a green courtyard located on the ledge to be topped by a viewing tower growing from the end of the structure. The Spiral House is an attempt to redefine a concept of an atrial house where the entire villa revolves around the internal courtyard.
The house framework is made of stainless steel and wooden modules that serve not only as a structural element but also as a facade component. The first impression of the building is focused on simple, wooden lamella panels array along the curvy line. The second look at the house reveals colorful boxes hidden behind the external facade. This double layer idea is an attempt to bring simplicity and balance into the chaotic colorful soul of the interior of the house.
