Architecture Office

The architecture studio of Alejandro Giménez Architects is located in the historic center of the coastal city of Estepona. The study is accessed from the entrance patio  thanks to a separate staircase to the house. The railing is treated as a simple compositional element composed of metal bars in black and 10 meters high. The profiles go up from the steps to the upper floor, making it a singular element in the project. Upon reaching the studio, a spacious space with a large sloping roof opens onto a terrace with barbecue and chill out area. The studio floor is a continuous gray microcement coating both indoors and outdoors, losing the boundaries between interior and exterior. The grayish color of the floor is enveloped by the wa...

La Terraza - Puente Romano

Located in one of the most exceptional areas of Marbella, this intervention takes place in Puente Romano, surrounded by gardens and the Mediterranean Sea.   Taking advantage of its privileged location, the terrace was designed with the views in mind. From the beginning we were clear that this space had to preserve the atmosphere of the area and the rest of the house. For this, we worked with natural materials such as stone for flooring or wood for pergola and furniture, ending with an infinity pool where its water leads to the sea.   The terrace was created as a complete area, where everything is understood as a space that is in harmony with the landscape.    En savoir plus

Villa Las Chapas

In this house a large patio was arranged as access to the house, which defines the relationship between the main house and the guest house. This means that the house is gradually revealed and becomes more mysterious as you enter. Access is through a sea of ​​small stones that are flooded by a stream of water that reminds us of Japanese architecture. The same feeling is experienced in the access to the rooms with the pink wall and the steps. With its simple white walls, the architecture frames and limits the landscape. Somehow the existing pines are highlighted to enhance their beauty and strength ... Each room has a direct relationship with its own outdoor space, its own private terrace from which to enjoy the views. The double height li... En savoir plus

Casa Los Chopitos

The house is an oasis of pleasure, a piece of paradise within the real estate maelstrom that has developed in Marbella in recent years. This house with family values, first inhabited by the owner's parents who were seduced by the glamorous Marbella of the 60s, is now enjoyed by a new generation of children who occupy it today during their holidays. In my work I try to introduce architecture slowly, looking not just seeing at a glance. The spaces take you and seduce you from one patio to another with the sound of fountains that call us to discover ... or a color that takes us from the inside to the outside without even realizing it. We try to recreate the pleasure of getting lost, walking aimlessly, something that can be felt wandering th... En savoir plus

House of the Sun

We have always been fascinated by the work of Andreu Alfaro "The door of the Universe" made in 1983. A circle rotated and suspended over a square. For some years it was located at the door of our studio, and it was surprising its ability to make us think, place ourselves at the base when the day ended and consider that we were indeed facing a threshold that opened the door to infinite space.   An analogous effect is felt when visiting the “In Praise of the Horizon” carried out by Eduardo Chillida in 1989 in Gijón. Where according to the author himself, the viewer is placed in direct relationship with the work and with the Universe. Chillida himself wondered: "Will not the present be, like the horizon, another borde... En savoir plus
