Spanish Mediterranean Architectural Design work for Southern California Custom Homes
This natural, elegant style originated from the “pueblos blancos” or white cities of Spain. Spanish Mediterranean style is characterized by large stucco walls, flat or low pitch tile roofs, tile or stone floors, wrought-iron trim, elegant carved wooden doors with metal accents, and decorative tile trim both inside and outside of the home. The essence of this style is inspired by the natural surroundings of the Mediterranean environment which is known for warm weather, pristine beaches, and beautiful vineyards.
Key Characteristics of the Spanish Mediterranean Style for Residential Construction
- Large white stucco walls and lots of windows
- Low pitch or flat roofs covered with tile or stone
- Large ornate carved wooden doors
- Wrought iron trim on both the interior and exterior
- Enclosed courtyards with rounded edged walls
- Rounded arches and entryways
- Decorative tile or stone indoor and outdoor
Spanish Mediterranean architecture seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor living areas with cooling features such as tall ceilings, tile floors, and lots of windows to accentuate the feeling of flowing fresh air. This style of architecture typically features flat or low pitched roofs, rounded entryways, and exposed wood beams that cause the home to feel open and flowing.
Spanish Mediterranean homes usually feature courtyards that are enclosed with rounded-edge walls. Outdoor relaxation spaces are covered by ramadas creating plenty of relief from the sun. Courtyards will often utilize stone tile with decorative accents or designs and plenty of flower gardens that enhance the feeling of balance with nature.
