From the architect. A-cero presents you a reform project of a house on the outskirts of Madrid. The project is intended to respond to customer needs in terms of distribution, placement and surfaces. Housing is developed on 3 levels, willing to 3 different levels. It has sought the perfect functioning of housing in relation to the needs of the property to adapt to an average gradient field and turning the main rooms of the communal areas of the development, looking for a better use of the views and use of free plot surface.

Access to basement, can be done either from the main area of the house or from the garage directly. We can see two areas, the swimming pool, sports facilities, relax and movies, area of service work, ; be resolved by giving direct access from the garage and connecting it to the ground floor with a staircase landing in the dealer’s work area. In the central area and connected to the garage are the storage stands, without direct lighting and ventilation.

On the ground floor, the hall-dealer that provides access to housing, comunicate two distinct areas by an imaginary axis running from east to west, one is the noble zone and the other is the area that complements the first one and gives way to the doorsteps through the main rooms as the bedroom, living room, dining room, office. On the opposite side of this imaginary line, we find the additional rooms, bathrooms, closets, pantry and kitchen. The sports facilities are completed on the outside with a paddle court, linked to housing from the main pedestrian access section of the house.

The formal solution has been the result of an aesthetic look for categorical volume playing with their own heights and shapes and the surrounding environment
