1001 Nights House

A-cero as Architects

A-cero presents one of its more recent projects in single family properties. It is a single family house located in a development in the outskirts of Madrid. Over a plot of 7000 m2 the building, with 2100 m2, rises with a high standard design answering the owners’ requirements. The access, through the development walkway, is placed on a higher level. Here is the property, partially hidden by many curved walls that seem to elevate from some water sheets over a stone covering in white, grey and black shades, placed on purpose as a part of the landscape in this area of the plot. Besides its sculptural features, typical of the A-cero style, this side of the facade expects the integration of the building in the surrounding environment. A wide stone path, with water sheets on both sides, lead us to a huge black glass door that gives us access inside the property. In the garden, following the wishes of the owners, there are palms, pome granate trees and Middle East vegetation. The rear facade of the house, the most visible, makes the most of the slight slope of the plot, where there is the porch, a pool and the garden. Almost all the views from the different rooms of the property are focused here, as the views of the lakes in the common areas of the development. All the building is dressed in “black villar granite stone”. In this part of the property big windows, with hidden woodwork, are opened, achieving a lot of light for the inside space. In the porch, the window in the main living room, of 10 meters, is automatically hidden, connecting indoors and outdoors. The passable area is made of white marble, the vase in the pool of blue gressite. The outside furniture is from the Rest collection by A-cero In.

1001 NIGHTS HOUSE

Vondom as Outdoor furniture, planters

1001 Nights is one of the latest projects by A-CERO. It´s about a familiar house located in the outskirts urbanization of Madrid. 2100m2 built up space on a plot of 7,000m2, stands with a high-level design that responds to the exacting demands from the owners.

The whole building is “dressed” in black villar granite stones, its sculptural elements are example of A-cero style. As for the outdoor furniture, the owner bets for the sofas, table and sun loungers of the Rest collection, supplemented by the planters “Alma”, all designed by A-cero for the company VONDOM.

In the garden, following the dream of the owners there are palm trees, pip garnet fruit trees and Middle East vegetation. Large curved volumes bring into line with the facade of the house forming a camouflage whole with the exterior landscape. Thus a sensation of movement between the walls, counteracting the straight lines of the covering is created. The wide porch area serves to the beach area of the swimming pool.
At night, the house comes alive, thanks to an elaborated lighting system that lights up in different colors.
