This a residential building with studios on the lower floor linked to the homes, located in a residential, landscaped Madrid neighborhood not entirely shielded from the impact of the city’s busy traffic arteries.
It was deliberately sought to approach the project in stages, creating landscaped platforms integrated into the homes, bringing to bear concepts developed in previous projects by the studio for a free-standing building, with the intention of recreating the atmosphere generated by concave spaces while supplying visual protection which would make possible the private use of the exterior areas on the different levels involved.
Two cores were conceived, granting the homes a pronounced degree of independence while satisfactorily resolving the issues of interior access and movement.
Due to its high-profile nature in the Madrid residential market, it was a project which led to a series of jobs based on requests for replicas by different entities.
Looking back on it now, the project’s greatest success has been the high levels of satisfaction reported by residents, who not only enthusiastically contributed to the building’s maintenance, but also feel identified with an architectural style which they have adopted as their very own.
