From the architect. This new house is situated in an exclusive state called “La Finca” in Pozuelo de Alarcon (Madrid).

It is one of the hundred houses that you can find already built in this exclusive housing development: an area with wide green spaces, lakes and spectaculars houses, which have been designed by A-cero.

The structure of this new house is made of clear volumes, straight lines and simples shapes. The house’s front is made of marble travertino and there are many windows in it. Both elements give a lot of lightness to the house.

It has a 1,600 sqm surface and three floors (basement, ground and high floor). The structure adapts itself to the slope (4,000 sqm) where the house is. The garage and service spaces are in the basement, while the most public spaces (lounge, dining room, living room …) are in the first floor. Bedrooms and more private rooms are in the high floor. A-cero has designed also a 80 sqm spectacular and geometric swimming pool. It harmonizes with the clean architecture of this A-cero project.

Lovin it! So many architects arguing about human scale....well we are living in the 21 century....we are living in big cities with skyscrpaers...human scale has become irrelevant...if u want human scale, go live in a log house in the forest...this house is is the owner I guess....if it suits him than the goal is is sterile and is the wish of the owner...if you are preferring coziness it is your choice....

If you think that come to the Mesi side LOL

Yes, this house is huge. It is dramatically oversized and I can't get the idea of living in a museum-sized house. This place doesn't feel spacious. It feels empty- as if someone just moved out.

However I find it beautiful- the design, the architecture- everything about it is beautiful, except the human scale. So if it was scaled down it would have been THE perfect house.

If you want a small(er) house don't look at A-Cero.

RQH · March 18, 2010

Someone missed the class on typology in arch. school. If no one told me it was a private residence I'd have no idea. Some parts look like an office building and others like a hotel.

I don't mind excess, luxury, or minimalism but I don't like bad, and that's what this is.

Jeison · March 17, 2010

I have always admired A-Cero. However, I think they´ve been too 'high' on their projects lately. This house is a comeback to the style that made me like them though.

The photo of the long interior pool remimds me a scene from "the incredibles" movie

Ma?gorzata · March 17, 2010

I don't like it.It looks like a museum, not a house.
Only photos taken by night are nice.

myaces2008 · March 17, 2010

I think it's one of the greatest houses i've ever seen
(aside? of Marcio Kogan). In my point of view a very, very good balance between cubic contents and design.
Who has better/equal examples?

amr · March 17, 2010

Sorry I hate excess.
Including finely crafted bland excess.

htx75qr8 · March 17, 2010 07:27 PM

And you would do what with the same Client? Build a memorial to your hatred?
