From the architect. Vallecas 48 was the winner of a contest organized by the EMVS of Madrid. It contains 41 residential units, 41 commercial and storage space, and 42 parking spaces. The study decided to group homes in a single building with an L-shaped plan. The result is two bodies that are joined, one flies over the other and the road below, while the other volume falls behind forming what the architects called a “game of volumes."

Follow the break for renderings, drawings and more photographs of this project.

The separated volumes converge to create access to an interior courtyard .  The building organized itself around pockets of green areas and step zones.

The facades are made of distinct holes, arranged randomly, giving the illusion of movement.

Active and passive systems have been used in order to save energy, such as taking advantage of the building orientation improving its energy efficiency.

BUENO!

Holcim Awards · December 07, 2010

The screens in the renderings look much simpler and pure. They became a bit disappointing in reality. Otherwise a nice design.

Reality strikes again! Look at the windows of both the project and the actual building. However, concerning Social Housing competitions in Madrid, local architects have to keep on budget...
