A triumphant marvel of supreme luxury modernism, the Vivienda 1001 Noche residence in Madrid is an unparalleled pinnacle of architectural exclusivity. Unmatched in vision, scope and scale, the sculptured exterior edifice of this remarkable luxury residence is simply breathtaking. Large curved exterior volumes bring a linear aesthetic into line with the facade of the house forming a pronounced yet surreal camouflage in harmony with the exterior landscape. The straight lines of the walls is counteracted by the curves of structure creating a sensation of movement that truly comes alive at night with elaborate multi-colored lighting that is an absolute spectacle to behold.
Access to the residence is specifically oriented through a long development walkway with a wide stone path flanked by multiple curved walls on both sides resolutely placed between white, grey and black stone landscaping covered with water sheets that propagate an elusion of suspension of the structure to a higher level on the property. The sculptural nature of the dwelling integrates the façade of the building into the surrounding landscape. The consenting rear facade of the house is sunken into the downward slope of the plot with hidden private porches and an elevated white marble deck with a blue gressite tile pool reveling in dramatic panoramic views across the property.
Dressed entirely in black villar granite stone the imposing monolithic residence conveys a formidable otherworldly sculptured icon that is a stark contrast to its natural setting. A fortress of stone, this astonishing trophy residence is more an artistic futuristic palace than a house, it is an exceptional statement of ultra-modern luxury contemporary architecture that demands virtuous attention and exacts powerful reflection with its presence.
