Modern House in Spain by A-cero

For this awesome project, A-cero wanted to remain faithful to their easily recognizable style, by creating a harmonious dialogue between curved lines and cubic forms. For all its projects, the Spanish architecture studio frequently draws its inspiration from the creations of renowned contemporary artists. “Art and Architecture have gone hand in hand in this and all our projects”.

The beautiful residence is located in Somosaguas, a residential area in Pozuelo de Alarcón, Spain and boasts 18,300 square feet of living spaces. Its architecture is characterized by sculptural volumes and is dominated by horizontal lines. The volumes are superimposed in layers and they seem to naturally “grow” from the ground. The main purpose when building this home was to create a modern residence with “risky stylized forms” without compromising convenience and comfort.

Realizing a natural, seamless connection between the building and the environment was also an important goal. To this end, A-cero designed a charming Japanese-inspired garden, beautifully landscaped with large bonsais and other ornamental plants. All the rooms on ground floor and basement level have direct access to the garden, to ensure a special connectivity between the inside and outside areas.

The basement is where the health and leisure areas are located: a game room, a massage room, a gym, a wine cellar, locker rooms for the outdoor infinity edge pool, a theater, a storage area and a service and facilities area. On the first floor is where the main lobby can be found, together with the open public spaces like the living room and the dining room, the kitchen and the indoor pool. Also here the master bedroom suite and the office are set. On the second floor there is a spacious painting studio with plenty of natural light and beautiful views of the surroundings.
