Certainly a beautiful sculpture from the outside but shame there's no shots of the interior. At the end of the day its inhabitation of the sculpture that counts


Spanish firm complete sculpturally inspired small-scale home in La Finca, Madrid 

A-cero architecture studio has presented a recently completed house in ‘La Finca’ estate in the town Pozuelo de Alarcón (Madrid). This project is smaller (1,000 sq m) than the other buildings in the surrounding housing development however A-cero maintain that its smaller dimensions turn the structure into a comfortable, cosy and practical house that offers maximum life quality to its occupants.

Its modern design is based on ‘impossible’ angles; the protruding and spectacular volumes one of A-cero’s winning trademarks. The façade of the house is made of travertino marble which is combined with dark grey granite in several areas, for example in the vertical plane of the main façade.

White has been used in many areas of decorative construction, both internally and externally. Furthermore, the property’s numerous ample windows give the house an air of light and vitality. The 4,500 sq m housing plot has direct access from a private road located in the north whilst in the south area a wide garden is joined with the surrounding urban development green spaces.

In the main entrance is a hall which communicates efficiently with an ample lounge and dining room. Large windows can be opened onto a porch where additional lounge and dining room facilities can be found. In this exterior area are a barbecue and a spectacular bar designed by A-cero, alongside an exterior swimming pool complete with jacuzzi.

On this level is also the kitchen, cleaning room and service area (including living room, two bedrooms and two baths) with independent exterior access. Furniture within the house has been designed by A-cero with top quality materials and finishes.
