Madrid-based design tudio ÁBATON has completed the Mar de Encinas project. This two-storey contemporary home can be found in Las Marías, Torrelodones, Madrid, Spain.
According to the architects: “Due to the characteristics of the land and the vegetation, the contemporary Spanish house was envisaged in two parts linked by a transparent passage. One of the units was built on pillars on top of highly resistant granite rock. In order to support the structure, special drilling machines with diamond disks were used to perforate in the exact place.
“The contemporary Spanish house is not just part of its surroundings but overlooks them because they can be seen from all angles. Our client was very interested in separating the public areas from the private ones. So the sitting room, the kitchen and the swimming pool were located on the upper floor and the bedrooms and bathrooms on the ground floor.”
