Alberto Campo Baeza, Raumplan House in Madrid

On a sloping plot in Aravaca, a ward of the city of Madrid, stands this 500-square-meter house that complies with local building codes with a square floor plan of 12 x 12 meters divided into quadrants of 6 x 6. The vertical development is based on the Loosian raumplan concept. The more communal parts of the dwelling take up the upper levels. The concatenation of double-height modules rises in a spiral formed by 90-degree turns, and the vertical displacement generates diagonal spaces. The openings on the facades adapt to the movement of the sun in the course of the day, and those on the roof frame views of the city.
