archatlas: Concrete Box Residence in Spain From the architect: Pitch House by Iñaqui Carnicero is located in Los Peñascales – “rocky area” in Spanish – on a slope with many outcrops and oriented to the south. The building, however, does not relate to them, but rather turns its back to the immediate surroundings, interacting with the distant Pardo forest and with Madrid´s skyline. While the design denies the abrupt topography of the site and the immediate context, the structure delicately leans on the existing rocks with a large horizontal plane that defines the footprint of the building. Once this datum has been established, the house is organized in two independent units. Car parking and other services are located underneath, and the living areas are put above in a single volume. Relating to the “footprint plane,” the size, shape, and placement of this hermetic, horizontal prism provides for the rest of the program: bedrooms, the main bathroom, study rooms, and a little toilet. In this piano mobile, where the daily life goes on, the floor is covered with white calcareous stone. A unique bay window located 1,40 meters from the floor trims the skyline of the landscape and uniformly illuminates the concrete ceiling. Images and text via (via archatlas)
