In addition to sculptures, the Dutch artist Xander Spronken also makes special architectural constructions. In SpronkenHouse he combines his two passions and you too can enjoy them, because the two villas can be rented as holiday homes.
An hour's drive from the city of Valencia you will find Les Useres, a municipality located in the Spanish province of Castellón. Accessible via a private road is a piece of land of 6 hectares with two villas designed by Xander Spronken. The Dutch artist saw this 'earthly canvas' as the perfect location for an architectural sculpture with a layout based on the Fibonacci series.
“When a sculpture becomes a home.”
The ceiling-high windows in all rooms provide a unique view of the surroundings. SpronkenHouse consists of two villas with their own swimming pool that can be rented separately or together for a unique experience. ‘SpronkenHouse is not a luxurious house as you might think of it. But in another way, it’s extremely luxurious because of the experience and size of the buildings,’ say Joris and Katherine who now rent it out on behalf of the artist. They also explain that Spronken really worked like an artist and not primarily as an architect. The villas are made of cement, glass and wooden beams that come from an old harbour in Rotterdam, no paint or plaster was used.
