The Mediterranean style is marked by natural elements and materials, as well as the wide presence of the white color in the projects, both in the external and internal areas. It refers to the region of Greece and Andalusia, serving as inspiration for many contemporary projects, mainly beach houses.
In this type of construction, the architecture has as a characteristic the ample lighting and the clean aspect, besides always to consider the interaction and the harmony with the nature in the surroundings. The curvilinear effect is also present in the walls of some projects, referring to an improvised style, originating from the artisanal method in which this type of construction was based on the past.
In the Mediterranean houses there is usually a predominance of stone and untreated woods, contrasting with the white color and giving the natural and rustic appearance, striking in this style.
The palette of blue colors is classic to match these designs, especially in windows, doors, railings and stops, referring to the crystal clear water and the blue of the sea.
