A stylish harmonious fusion of geometric curves and bold shapes, this stunning luxury residence on the outskirts of Madrid, takes the complexity of contemporary Spanish architecture to a new level of modern realization. An artistic tapestry of virtuous minimalism and sheer altruistic luxury, this inspired residence truly transcends the precincts of normal living.
The interior contains a varied program of a complex array of spaces with different heights and levels along with an open plan of linearity to create geometric freedom. The spaces are freed of columns and other elements that would alter its fluidity and openness. The lower level contains the main hall, covered by a curved ceiling that accentuates its relevance, living and dining rooms, master bedroom, gym, interior pool, kitchen and service areas. A painting studio is situated on the upper level of the residence under a long-curved ceiling flooded with natural light with some of the over the surrounding landscape. The basement is dedicated to health and leisure activities, with a bar, games room, massage room, projection room, wine cellar and fully appointed gym.
Dominant horizontal volumes are superimposed in layers, from a partially visible basement, forming structural tiers that appear to emerge naturally from the ground. This impression is underscored by the treatment of the facades, which have been treated in a dark tone and textured with regular geometries reminiscent of natural rock formations. The intimate distribution of cubic shapes and curves throughout this luxury residence offer a coherent dialogue of art and architecture that is both sculptural and magnificently spectacular.
