IT IS ABOUT THE BUENAVISTA SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL COMPLEX COMPOSED OF 27 HOUSES IN GETAFE, IN THE BUENAVISTA SECTOR OF GETAFE, CONCEIVED AS AN INTEGRATED COMPLEX FORMING A SINGLE ENTITY.
The name of Buenavista is given because the urban sector that is within the southeast slope of Cerro Buenavista, a witness hill of 704 meters of altitude. The name of this hill comes from the excellent views that can be seen from its highest point. The communication of the Buenavista neighborhood is very good, it limits on the north with the homonymous Park, on the east with the A-42 motorway, on the south with the M-50 motorway and on the west with the municipalities of Leganés and Fuenlabrada . It has several bus lines, a suburban station and a stop on line 12 of the metro. In addition, the neighborhood has numerous public schools, a music conservatory, sports centers and two large parks.
The plot, located in the aforementioned Buenavista de Getafe neighborhood, in Madrid, on a unique plot bordered on its four sides by streets; three roads with road and pedestrian traffic and one pedestrian. This allows us to obtain four facades from the set. The project aims to respond to a situation of "urban unity", surrounded by a suburban and peaceful landscape, emerged as a small finding, something different found at random, just as when an astrologer suddenly discovered that celestial body that he was looking for precisely in the most unexpected place.
The stony exterior appearance of these single-family homes in Getafe is enhanced by the choice of facade materials. Its stone skin contrasts in sandstone and dark brown tones, which combined generate a color scheme with warm contrasts, easily adaptable to the environment, generating warm and elegant environments. At the back of each house we will find a garden with a seating area and green, where it forms a small garden that will increase the feeling of calm, just where the living room, kitchen and secondary bedrooms on the upper floor open. The housing complex differs from the traditional urban fabric that makes up the single-family home within the Buenavista sector in Getafe.
The plants are configured remembering the cellular nature, where all its interior pieces (bedrooms, kitchen, ...) are glued to a nucleus (interior garden or patio) and from this free and discovered central space on which the house rotates, allows that certain spaces of the house look out, and to which the natural light comes from several points, presided over by the staircase that together with the patio configure the center of the house. The situation of this interior patio allows, in summer, to produce natural cross ventilation, improving its energy efficiency.
