Views, sun exposure, access and terrain all happily came together on the site, together with a simple and coherent plan yielding a home which its owners have truly made use of and enjoyed, gradually adapting it to their changing family situations over the last two decades.
The structure of parallel, load-bearing brick walls sustains horizontal levels resting on different tiers connecting different spaces centered around a patio, while at the same time taking advantage of the magnificent views of the Gredos mountain range.
The home itself, serving as a buffer against the harsh northern wind, acts as a shield providing the garden with privacy.
Bushhammered concrete in the structural elements and wood and polished concrete on the floors, complement the brick with a sober air and noble aging which have allowed the house to conserve the spirit in which it was built.
