A-cero creates hybrid building as mix of private housing and art 

A-cero, the architecture studio managed by Joaquin Torres and his associate architect Rafael Llamazares, recently completed this residential property in the outskirts of Madrid, in ‘Pozuelo de Alarcon’.

The design for the 1,000-square-metre house attempts to create a dialogue with the natural environment whilst retaining A-cero’s architectural philosophy. Large windows have been installed to facilitate the entrance of light into the structure’s interior, whilst the main entrance sports a vertical fail made of dark stone granite which contrasts from the rest of the facade.

A-cero have deliberately included an element of sculpture into this residential design – the blocks are dressed in marble travertine and are created in curved shapes and edges. These touches are designed to emphasize the project’s ‘wings’ and contribute to the weightlessness of the building.
