Aluminum House by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos


 

A well-established landscape surrounded by gardens with large trees within the metropolis of Madrid is the lucky starting point of this house.

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

The scale of the house is modulated through the understanding of the living area as a base that emerges from the same natural stone that furrows part of the texture. The sleeping area is located on it and focuses the view to the north and south, protecting itself from the eyes of neighbors and generating shady terraces where you enjoy the outside.

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