Text description provided by the architects.

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.ARCHITECTURE FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOSINTERIOR DESIGN ALFARO HOFMANNPROJECT TEAM Fran Silvestre | Principal in ChargeJordi Martínez | Collaborating Architect Fran Ayala | Collaborating ArchitectMaría Masià | Collaborating ArchitectMaría José Sáez | Collaborating ArchitectÁngel Fito | Collaborating ArchitectAdrian Mora | Collaborating ArchitectEstefanía Soriano | Collaborating ArchitectPablo Camarasa | Collaborating ArchitectSandra Insa | Collaborating ArchitectSanti Dueña I Collaborating ArchitectRicardo Candela | Collaborating ArchitectDavid Sastre | Collaborating ArchitectSevak Asatrián | Collaborating Architect Álvaro Olivares | Collaborating Architect Paloma Márquez | Collaborator ArchitectMercedes Calderón | Collaborating Architect Eduardo Sancho | Collaborating Architect Esther Sanchís | Collaborating ArchitectVicente Picó | Collaborating ArchitectErika Angulo | Collaborating ArchitectAlba Monfort | Collaborating Architect Ruben March | Collaborating ArchitectSTRUCTURAL ENGINEER David Gallardo | UPVPROJECT MANAGER Orencio Peña (Serconex) BUILDING ENGINEER Zacarias Gonzalez (Serconex) PHOTOGRAPHY Fran Silvestre Arquitectos (Models) Diego Opazo (Construction)VIDEO Alfonso CalzaRENDERINGS 3D VISUAL EFFECTS LOCATION MadridSITE AREA 1770,00 m2BUILT AREA 958,03 m2BUILDING SERVICES Sanitaryware Toilet | Suspended, Link.
