Fran Silvestre Navarro definitely knows what the heck he is doing. But you don't have to trust us. See it with your own eyes.
Although the project was completed a while back, we feel like it’s always a good time to feature such architectural gems because, why not.
It all starts with a very privileged piece of land right next to one of the most beautiful Golf Courses in Bétera, Valencia, Spain.
Minimizing the volumetric impact quickly became on of Fran’s objectives, one that very common to his practice as a matter of fact. A façade that seems to lodge only one floor and other elements that compose the area’s urbanization, resemble the very curvy natured style of home.
On the inside, the house features not two but three floors with colossal windows looking out and somehow framing the greenery on the outside. The bedrooms are strategically alienated for privacy while an underground area provides living space.
Right on the garden is the pool, the spectacularly symmetrical pool that mimics and almost praises the home’s monolithic and ventilated façade.

Casa Balint, as you see in the images, truly symbolizes the modern notion of architects as artists and architecture as an art form.
