Ceramic House by Hector Ruiz-Velazquez

The Ceramic House is a project designed by Spanish architect Héctor Ruiz-Velázquez.
The small apartment is located in the attic space of an early 20th century building in Madrid. The challenge for the architect was to transform a small area into a new and minimalist living space with a variety of levels.
The Ceramic House project by Héctor Ruiz-Velázquez:
“In the attic of an emblematic building of classical early 20th century Madrid, this new concept of living space is placed: UNLIMITED SPACE (Ceramic House) is presented by architect Héctor Ruiz-Velázquez and built out of total freedom of layers. As if the design would be a three-dimensional object, every one of the rooms or points of the home can be located by specifying the axis of coordinates.
The result is the power to move around in few square meters at different heights, going up and down, offering a new experience of roominess in the context of a home: to explore the space. The transition between the rooms is continuous and lets the movement flow freely across the numerous levels.
