BUESO-INCHAUSTI & REIN ARQUITECTOS as Architects

On Madrid’s northern periphery lies this work, the result of a project undertaken for a property owner featuring limited resources, but who trusted the studio, granting it enough freedom to effectively approach the project. Over time we are increasingly convinced that the client is a key factor impacting the final result of any work.

The project’s essential focus was determined by the main problem at hand: the need to create a longitudinal space of over 100 meters from which to provide access to 110 units through three levels, without resorting to the conventional corridor solution. And this was how the covered space, and opened for legal reasons, became the highlight of a typology in which the entrance and movement through common areas were a principal concern.

Said space houses three vertical, connecting nuclei featuring walkways on two access levels delivering light to all the units, which filters in through a canopy crafted of wooden beams resting upon laminated wooden trusses.
The contrast between the two wings making up the central space creates a visual sensation shortening the complex’s length while infusing it with transparency. Inside three different level-based typologies were developed.

In terms of its construction the work is austere and based on elements of prefabricated concrete, laminated wood, galvanized steel and stretched sheets.
