A23 House

The restoration and extension of the existing house in the Colonia de El Viso garden-city, respects the character and nature of this 1930’s cluster inside Madrid, but modifies the scale of its openings due to the presence and views to an extraordinary garden across the street. Enlargements are finished in black stucco in an inversion of the usual hierarchy where that which is added is “lighter” than the existing, whereas here a new unity is achieved in a balance of “weights” unified by the sameness of the three main openings.
