From the architect. A-cero presents its new house: a built set of volumes and sheets combined as a perfect play that mixes the limits between art and architecture. According to A-cero aesthetics, modern projecting, blocks and plates define the design of this residential project with sculptural references.

The beige marble with the wait walls and roofs produce a lot of clarity and luminosity in interiors. Furthermore, these colours create a spaciousness sensation in the house. Design, functionality and quality are the main concepts that have established this house´s design where elegance, modernity and simplicity stand out according to A-cero´s architecture.
