The volcano landscape was

an inspiration for Cesar.

The house is built within the lava bubble 

A unique world of Cesar Manrique

As the landscape of Lanzarote island is unique thanks to Volcano eruptions, Cesar Manrique just added some more uniqueness to this Island. His house is built inside the bubble of lava. He took the advantage of an already made place inside the landscape and created a unique atmosphere by adding plants, white color, and blue water into the dark volcano landscape.

Lanzarote once was an Island known after camels. Cesar Manrique was born in Lanzarote and he loved his home Island, despite many traveling he did. When he returned to Lanzarote he had a vision, that it shouldn't be known only as an island with camels. 

His unique architecture projects soon become well-known attractions. At the same time, he set an architectural codex, that all houses on the Island should have white facades and blue windows shutters and roads should be like carpets laying on the Lanzarote landscape. He made this Island a really unique place to visit. And we found it as an amazing vision because this vision really made the Island unique and a real visual attraction. 

 

'The details are not the details,

they make the design'
