House in Madrid

House in Fuente del Fresno

San Sebastián de los Reyes. Madrid

1995-1997

Single-family house in which the topography of the plot and its orientation condition in a great way the proposal. The site, with slope towards the North and exceptional views over the oaks that surround it, is densely covered with trees that accentuate its shady character. The house intends to take over the site, to form a private, well-orientated outdoor precinct in the highest level of the slope where the house opens to the South. The rest of the plot is maintained in its natural state. Three large skylights introduce the sun inside the three volumes in which the house is divided in order to reduce the scale of the building immerse between the trees.
