From the architect. Carabanchel 19 set a new standard for public housing developments in Spain. Commissioned by the Madrid Housing Authority, the concept was to create an innovative housing development that would marry design and function and offer sustainable solutions for future models of high-density housing.

107 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments are set in five- and six-storey dual-aspect blocks arranged around three internal courtyards. Each home enjoys views into the landscaped courtyards and out across the nearby park, the old town and the Guadarrama mountains beyond. The louvre screening system that wraps around the building unifies the complex and creates a unique aesthetic. It also allows residents to control their own environment, providing shading and privacy to the balconies off each apartment. Pools and planting in the internal courtyards pre-cool the night air for natural ventilation and enhance the microclimate.

This project is over 8 years old and utterly dull. Why publish it? There are so many good Spanish projects out there.
