When a sculpture
becomes a home.

Discover the two villa's.

The Spanish Tuscany

At the centre of the Castellon hills, a 30 minute drive away from the Mediterranean Sea lies a small private road leading to an immensity of land that serves as a large earthy canvas full of Almond and Olive trees. This region and the many medieval villages surrounding it, could easily be mistaken for Tuscany, the Spanish Tuscany. The weather in the region has a unique micro climate with lots of hours of sun, even in the winter days.

Two Villa’s

At the center of it all, are two villas designed by the Dutch artist Xander Spronken.
A sculpture? Not quite... A house? Not exactly... This Spanish retreat is the culmination of both.
It greets you with its host of 6-meter high concrete pillars that do not loom so much as they soar.

A sculpture that has no rhythm but with details inspired by the ancient Fibonacci sequence.  Fifty-three concrete pillars carry a roof of old mooring posts that weigh down on you bringing back a sensation of earthing and rooting.​

The space in between

The terrain.

The villas are composed of large floor-to-ceiling windows that provide magnificent views of the Iberian mountains with the 1.800m high Penyagolosa summit as its centrepiece.  Accessed via a private gate the 6 hectares private property consists of two separate houses with each its own swimming pool. Both houses are equipped with air-conditioning, floor-heating, large fitted kitchens, lounge areas, and two bedrooms and 2 bathrooms each. Additionally, the houses are eco-friendly, operating on solar energy and heated by a heat pump.

The artist
Xander Spronken

Anyone who categorizes Xander Spronken (Maastricht, Netherlands, 1956) purely as a sculptor does not really do him justice. In addition to iron sculptures, he makes truly unique architectural constructions.​ Spronken approaches architecture the way he does all his artpieces. Negative space is valued as much as positive mass, air and void animated by light and the inexplicable emotion of volume. His passion for iron is the unifying thread in these works. In his own inventive and intuitive manner, he combines the traditional skills of a blacksmith with an authentic and multifaceted artistic practice.  The unique signature of Xander Spronken’s can be found all over the globe. His artistic language is universal.
