Stacked houses in Telde (Las Palmas)

Romera y Ruiz Arquitectos 


The practice of Pedro Romera García and Ángela Ruiz Martínez has stacked concrete tubes of near-square (3.65 x 3.20 m) sections in raising 25 dwellings between the streets Lola Massieu and Los Gofiones in Telde, a municipality on Grand Canary Island. With a built area of 3,528 square meters, the composition develops from an immobile outer box that generates inner boxes, which change position in adapting to required uses, combining private and shared spaces.

Towards the square, the complex solves itself with five floors set back to form galleries protected by lattices of vertical concrete planes. On the other side, the depth of the terraces allows use of glass enclosures.
