Surrounded by mountains and rows of olive and almond trees, SpronkenHouse is situated on a spacious plot of land in the Spanish province of Castellón. Designed by the Dutch artist and sculptor Xander Spronken, the house is a living sculpture constructed of concrete, wood, iron and glass. Six-meter-high columns are connected with wooden beams, the spaces between them filled with huge frameless glass panes, and distributed throughout the house you will find elements of hand-forged iron. The ambience is characterised by the interplay of space and negative space, of inside and out, light and shadow, and the pure beauty of the materials. Despite the high columns and the robust timber beams, the rooms are bright and airy. The boundaries between the exterior and interior are broken, an effect intensified by the vast height of the rooms.
SpronkenHouse consists of two buildings, the 160 sq m east wing and the 150 sq m west wing. These modules, each with space for four people and their own pool, may be rented separately or together.
