A consolidated landscape surrounded by gardens with big trees within the metropolis of Madrid is the fortunate starting point of this house.


The piece, of metallic and horizontal nature, produces the effect of having just one storey. With its proportions and materiality it both contrasts and blends with the tall trees of its environment.


The scale of the house is moderated through the understanding of the day area as a base emerging from the same natural stone which paves part of the plot. The night zone is placed on it and focuses the view to the north and south while protecting itself from the eyes of the neighbours and generating shaded terraces in which to enjoy the exterior.


The substantially square plan is designed to unite the program in a compact way. The staircase and central inner atrium distribute the rooms, establishing a functional hierarchy in which all spaces open up to the garden.

Un paisaje consolidado rodeado de jardines con grandes árboles, situado en la ciudad de Madrid, constituye el afortunado punto de partida para esta casa.


Una pieza de naturaleza metálica, horizontal, produciendo el efecto de tener una sola planta. Contrasta y se mimetiza por su proporción y materialidad con los altos árboles del entorno.


La escala de la casa se modera gracias a entender la zona de día como un zócalo que emerge con la misma piedra natural que urbaniza parte de la parcela. Sobre esta base se deposita la zona de noche, focalizando las vistas al norte y al sur, protegiéndose de las miradas vecinas, generando terrazas en sombra en las que disfrutar del exterior.


Se dibuja una planta sensiblemente cuadrada, que aglutina un amplio programa de forma compacta. La escalera y el atrio interior centrado distribuyen las estancias, jerarquizando usos, con todos los espacios abriéndose al jardín.
