108 Housing in Madrid | A-cero

• May 21, 2010

The spanish architecture firm A-cero recently has completed the 108 housing in Madrid.

It has been designed from a clear sculptural inspiration; the blocks appear dressed in marble travertino and create curved shapes and edges. These elements emphasize the project’s wings and contribute to give weightlessness to the building.

The Architecture Studio A-cero, managed by Joaquín Torres and his associate architect Rafael Llamazares, presents this housing in the outskirts of Madrid, in “Pozuelo de Alarcón”.

It has been designed from a clear sculptural inspiration; the blocks appear dressed in marble travertino and create curved shapes and edges. These elements emphasize the project’s wings and contribute to give weightlessness to the building.

In the main entrance there is a vertical fail made of stone dark granite that contrasts with the facade.

The large windows facilitate the access of the light to the house’s interior. In the first floor you can find the hall, kitchen and service area. In a lower floor there are the most intimate areas constituted by the bedrooms and spaces for free time.

The house, with a 1.000 m2 area, dialogues with the natural environment and, from the point of view of the design, shows the A-cero Studio signs and its architecture philosophy.
