Design & Environment

Developed by the Technological Institute of Renewable Energy, this holiday home in Tenerife is part of a revolutionary installation that brings together a collective architectural response to the sensitivities and environmental challenges of development on the island. 

The collection of bioclimactic architectural homes was created with a guiding philosophy and goal to produce self-sufficient, net-zero carbon emissions as a model for the future. 

Located in a cluster on the southern tip of the island, each of the twenty four  architects has responded to the site with smart solutions and stylish individuality, reinventing what design and responsible ideas can achieve. 

This one, designed by architect Alfonso Fernandez Castro, is raised above the ground, and organized in a series of box forms around an inner garden with a terrace that looks out towards the Atlantic. The walls of slide away glass and wood cross beams create a bright inner world of staggered spaces and simple, modern design.

Be sure to explore the visitors center for a look into the mechanics of  bioclimactic architecture and renewable energy sources that have shaped this dynamic community. 

Description

Located on the the island’s southern tip in the Montaña Pelada National Park, this holiday home along Tenerife’s wild Atlantic coast is one of over twenty unique and stylish dwellings designed to be low impact, bioclimactic, and responsive to the unique environmental challenges of the island. 

Its exterior does not prepare you for the surprise that awaits you inside. Harnessing the elements, the one story house is formed with exterior sandwich panels, wood beams and glass walls that illuminate the interiors while still providing exterior views and privacy.

There’s are two lounge spaces, a compact, fully equipped kitchen and adjacent dining space, and three bedrooms that sleep up to four guests.

All of the spaces benefit from the ocean breezes and there is a great deck facing sunsets over the water and private access to unspoiled, deserted coves.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

The compound includes on site security, Wifi throughout, cable TV, kitchen and bath amenities and private access and parking.  

AROUND

Of the seven Canary Islands off of West Africa, Tenerife is the largest and the most popular, which sees tourists flocking to it’s year round warm weather beaches and resorts.  

Dominated by Mt. Teide at the center, the dormant volcano is Spain’s tallest peak, and is home to the UNESCO designated Teide National Park with an amazing network of hiking trails including Las Cañadas Aguamansa, Rambla de Castro, Punta de Teno, and Masca where you can traverse the tropical jungle and volcanic landscapes or scale the Cliffs of Los Gigantes to watch the whales offshore.

An island of extraordinary diversity and culture, the Los Realejos coastline contains numerous historical spots and faded old colonial towns to explore including La Orotava with its traditional houses and cobblestone pedestrian areas.

The 15th century capitol town of San Cristóbal de La Laguna is a historic World Heritage gem, and is divided into two distinct parts – Villa de Arriba and Villa de Abajo and is worth a visit for it’s grand architecture and excellent restaurants.

The southern tip of the island swells with revelers in July and August with clubs that are open all night and bonfire parties on the many beaches including Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas.

Home to many celebrations throughout the year, the island plays host to the largest Carnaval outside of Brazil in February with partygoers in colorful costumes, parades, music and dancing that goes for days.
