That Concrete house with the green roof La Marseta impresses above all with its clear, puristic shapes. The concept, based on the minimalist style, gives the house a unique exterior look. The extensive green roof creates the connection between the house and the landscape and gives the building a rural flair and natural appearance. The exclusive country house was designed by Sonia Miralles Mud and built in 2009 in Mutxamel, Alicante, Spain. Energy efficiency and environmental friendliness were the focus of the project planning.

Inside, the furniture is restrained. Only individual living details give the interior design its characteristic appearance. All walls and ceilings are white-gray and plastered. The kitchen fronts are simple, white and handleless. Small window openings offer views of the hilly landscape. The fireplace creates comfort and security. That Concrete house from  Sonia Miralles Mud is equipped with underfloor heating and natural ventilation. Double walls and cross ventilation ensure a pleasant room climate – preheating the air in winter and passive cooling in summer.
