Brick House, Madrid

Tuñón y Albornoz Arquitectos 

The brick house is built on a plot qualified by a group of tall pine trees, located at its northeast corner, and by the silent proximity of Monte del Pardo, along its north face.

The complex is organized around three independent volumes: the cubic volume of the house, a linear block for covered parking, on whose roof there is a terrace facing El Pardo, and a small arbor that is covered with a pergola. The three volumes structure the landscaped spaces in four differentiated bands: the access band, with the enigmatic presence of tall pine trees, a small patio located between the house and the viewpoint, which enables access to the house, a wide meadow with the arbor, which is profusely surrounded by trees, and the pool area located on a lower level of the garden to guarantee privacy.

The cubic volume of the house is organized in three levels: the family bedrooms are placed on the first floor, the common areas are located on the ground floor, and the auxiliary units are placed on the first floor basement with a wide patio. The square plan of the house is structured with a central cross shape, which contains vertical and horizontal communications, while the rooms take up the four squares of the corners.
