PORCELANOSA Grupo Projects: Volumetric architecture in the Sierra de Guadarrama

Esta vivienda que ha diseñado el estudio Arquitectos Madrid 2.0 y Luitom Interiorismo combina varios volúmenes y opta por una estructura diáfana abierta al exterior donde las colecciones de PORCELANOSA Grupo potencian la luz natural y la amplitud de cada estancia.

 

Con vistas a la Sierra de Guadarrama y una estructura basada en el juego de volúmenes y materiales, esta vivienda planificada por Luis Sánchez Blasco y Tomás Fernández del estudio Arquitectos Madrid 2.0 destaca por su estructura sobria y vanguardista. Exterior-facing and with an open design, the building allows natural light to enter all its windows, and PORCELANOSA Group's collections make it a special refuge.

Between brutalism and architectural plainness

The first thing that draws the eye is the ventilated façade which was constructed using Butech adhesives, joining materials and fastenings. The pure and defined lines of the front allow each part of the home to be joined by a minimalist aesthetic that turns less into more. This is a fact that can be seen in the outdoor garden, where the swimming pool is integrated into the overall structure of the house. 

That sensation of unlimited space is provided by the ceramic wood Minnesota , the predominant material. Its fine grains and soft texture recreate the colours and contrasts of natural wood with the added resistance afforded by the technical properties of ceramic. It was installed using Butech's ceramic fitting materials, which ensure the preservation of each piece over time.

A futuristic kitchen

The futuristic design that predominates this space, based on geometric lamps, minimalist taps and unlimited worktops, is combined with the ceramic parquet Minnesota Ash, with its weathered grey color that provides that warmth typical of kitchens that are always cooking up a storm.

Minimalist, sustainable bathrooms

The bathrooms continue the minimalist trend that predominates throughout the property, combining white lacquered furniture and ceramic wood flooring or an oxidised finish, as is the case for Ruggine Aluminio, the main wall tile in the first bathroom.

The main bathroom features the Round tapsfrom Noken, a collection that promotes sustainability and allows for greater water saving. This piece combines with the bathtub Lounge, with its rounded corners and ergonomic back rest allowing for enhanced well-being and better back posture.

The second bathroom follows the same aesthetic with the collection Minnesota Ash as the main material on the floors and walls. This is demonstrated by the Lux 1100 East series countertop and the washbasin from the Basic collection from Krion, whose pure shapes recall those early fixtures from Ancient Greek baths. These pieces are complemented by the Nk Concept toilet and taps Round from Noken, which enhance comfort and water saving.
