Martin Gomez Arquitectos designed Nautilus House in 2016. Located in one of the closest blocks to the beach of Manantiales, Maldonado, Uruguay, the house resembling a ship’s deck measures 203m² (2,185ft²).
The house uses in its full potential the buildable area, having three main volumes linked by two smaller ones, containers of the stairs and the elevator, linking the house vertically and horizontally. Thus, the walkthrough of it is from the most social areas to the most intimate towards the interior.
The large central courtyard with the pool and the barbecue area is the social sector par excellence and it can be seen from the entire house. Two other smaller courtyards provide the house with light in all rooms. The interiors are entirely coated in white painted wood and the bathrooms are luxuriously cladded in marquina marble.
Nautilus also consists of a movie theater, a cellar, its own gym and extensive library to the games room, a necessary large recreation space for this summerhouse of a large family, combining the comfort of its interior, with its incorporation into the landscape of the Manantiales coast on the outside.
