Located right in the heart of Madrid’s Chamartín district, the project came about as a continuation of previous experiences, following a rationalist line in which the studio had always worked. Worthy of special note is the integration of the buildings within their urban surroundings, and how the layout of the lots was dealt with by creating a “T” for private use, a solution previously employed by the studio, and which has proven to be a wise decision.
The typology of the homes, arranged in rows, was addressed globally, with the entire project conceived of within its setting, and not just as a mere juxtaposition of repeated elements. To this end the composition is as free and organic as the typology would allow.
The homes rest over private gardens and face southward, featuring great glass panels on all the levels, including the semi basement, connected to the garden through an areaway.
The quality of the materials used, in the homes as well as in the access to them, have allowed both to age well.
The design of the overall project made it possible to customize each one of the homes, modifying some points in the original plans, enriching and infusing the final result with spontaneity.
