Palmeira Duplex Penthouse was recently restored to conserve this interesting example of the contemporary style of domestic architecture. The design with contrasts between light and shadow promoted by strong straight lines, angular shapes and curved walls generates subtle and open spaces to spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. This example of contemporary architecture is complemented with original furniture design by the most important designers. Further, on the walls there is a selection of contemporary visual artists.
The purpose of the house is none other than to provide visitors a flavour of the enormous sensitivity of Galicia, its gastronomy and its people in which the raw interest of the dialogue between artistic disciplines, is transmuted into a space of ease in which the visitor is surrounded by beauty, harmony and serenity.
The design of common spaces, both spatially and functionally, facilitates both independence and also enjoyment for a family or a group of friends. Highlights such as the spaces generated in the front of the house and gorgeous terrace, full equipped kitchen with separate dining area, elegant living room and others relaxing areas. The amazing terrace is a perfect space in which to organise dinners enjoying of the spectacular panoramic view of the sea. Additionally the terrace is the ideal place to have a glass of Galician white wine “albariño” and admire the Rias Baixas sunset. Winters will be even more enjoyable by the warmth of the Sweden fireplace located in the living room.

Additionally, one of the most important British architect, David Chipperfield, has a private house very close from Palmeira village. This house occupies a gap in the main street of the small Galician fishing village Corrubedo. Sitting at the northern edge of a large protected bay on Spain’s north-west Atlantic coast, the site offers dramatic views out over the harbour and to the sea beyond. The composition of the house’s design was influenced by the contrasting geometries of its immediate neighbours.
