At Monte Sollube 5 – in Boadilla del Monte, a municipality of Madrid’s metropolitan area – stands this two-floor house built for three generations of the family its architect, Malu (María Luisa) de Miguel (Gran Canaria, 1987). The dwelling proper contains 315 square meters, complemented by 85 square meters for hallways and covered terraces. The construction really has two parts flanking the garage, the larger one harboring a double-height living room that connects the upstairs rooms.
Flowing circulations blur the lines between interior and exterior spaces. The materials show their rough textures, such as concrete (poured into OSB formworks) and bare brick, which is also used in the showers, waterproofed with transparent primer.
