Casa Toto located in Alicante, designed by Grupo Aranea is an introverted and entangled family house, sees interiors intertwined with verdant outdoor spaces.

"The residence, curvilinear and intertwined, is born in opposition to the banality of the architecture and suburban landscape of Alicante. Surrounded by concrete walls, the house designed by the Spanish studio Grupo Aranea is almost completely introverted.

The context is characterised by a lack of singular elements and urban quality. The flat landscape has been invaded in a few years by the "pepitos", single-family houses typical of the sprawl.

Closed off within its irregularly shaped limits, Casa Toto is composed of a broad variety of spaces and paths. Patios, gardens, terraces and domestic environments – made of concrete, glass and wood – blend to form hybrid and labyrinthine areas. The structure also houses a creative workshop and exhibition spaces, where the client can welcome guests and display his works." — Salvatore Peluso for domusweb.it
