Concrete House ll / A-Cero

Located in Pozuelo de Alorcon, Spain, the architecture studio A-cero presents one of its last works about a big single-family house. It takes place in the outskirts of Madrid on a 5,000 m2 plot. It is a single storey building and it has a 1,600 m2 built surface. The first sensation that this house produces when people go into the plot is that the building seems to be hidden between concrete walls and vegetable ramps that extend up to the roof. They are dyed in dark gray and contain, between them, vegetation areas that seem to climb towards the sky. The house's facade show a spectacular organic view of the whole house and so even the hard concrete shows its most kind face. Architecture by A-cero, Joaquin Torres Architects.
