House Of The Infinite- A place where time stands still & the senses rejoice!

Spanish architect Alberto Campo Baeza has designed a house that is par the imagination of the normal. When I read about this brilliant house, I felt we should all take a pause from our hectic lives & imagine what it would like to be living in the lap of nature, literally.

Nothing more and nothing less.

Alberto has designed and built a surreal house – House Of The Infinite- on a paradise, at Cádiz. Well, only recently I discovered that Cádiz is the southernmost part of mainland Spain, as well as the southernmost part of continental Europe. When I saw House Of The Infinite, the first fleeting thought in my head was- If I had to choose a place to embrace death, this would be it.

The Earth sings for those who listen!

Campo Baeza, describes the building as “the most radical house we have ever made”.

The phenomenal architect says that this house is built on a stone platform at the very edge of the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, where the sea unites the new and the old continent. One of the reasons it is named the House Of The Infinite because it has a horizontal plane on high built in stone, Roman travertine. It gives the illusion of sand, an infinite plane facing the infinite sea.

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink wild air…”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The upper level of the building contains rooms dedicated to social gatherings, including a living room with a circular skylight overhead and a covered balcony in the front. From the living room extends to a simple yet elegant kitchen & a huge dining area.
