Concrete House II by Madrid-based studio A-cero located in Pozuelo de Alarcón, a suburb near the city of Madrid, Spain. To many concrete is a cold, imprison like material, but A-cero has created an astounding design that mixes hard with soft; huge glass windows contrasted with masses of concrete. The large windows welcome its surroundings as it floods the home with natural light and greenery from the outdoors. A beautiful landscape design that brings life and warmth to the home as it delicately creates a hospitable environment. The design includes: a grass staircase, vegetable ramps that extend up to the roof, several trees, a large pond and a fountain.Concrete-House-II-25-800x530 (1)
The façade and the roof serve as the main ecological and sustainable roles as they are covered with low consume vegetation. Furthermore, the roof has been implemented with a renewable energy system made of wide surfaces with solar tubular collectors that allow for solar energy autonomy of the house.
