Concrete House by A-cero
“With the combination of design, quality and functionality arises this new A-cero´s work: a house of 1.500m2 defined by a set of clean lines and perfect volumes.
The grey colour of the concrete that make up the whole building and an architectural wide black pergola, there are the elements that, at first sight, stand out in the house exterior. Furthermore, huge windows have been included in the façade in order to enjoy of the pleasant surrounding views of the house.
The construction has two floors that have been built according to the slope of the house´s plot. The first level, where the pedestrian access is, has a area of 653m2. This floor has been distributed in three areas: a familiar area (lounge, dining room, kitchen, office, a living room for the children …); a private part where are four bedrooms, with its proper baths and dressing-rooms, and a free time and relaxation area that is opened to the exterior and the swimming pool throw a wide porch.
In the ground floor there are a gymnasium, a wine vault, cleaning rooms and the area for service and house´s facilities.
In the interior spaces, everything is thought until the millimeter. Every wall, detail and corner shows the elegant and studied work that A-cero has made. The exterior is incorporated to the construction interior throw several patios that create luminous and cheerful spaces for living every day. Furthermore, the white walls and clear and comfortable decoration contrasts with the dark wood the house´s ground.
In the exterior the overflowing swimming pool of 45m2 stands out. This and porch´s ground are made of granite abujardado, a grey stone. In this exterior area you can find also a summer dining room and a relaxing area covered by a movable pergola. It is a pleasure for satisfying the comfort of the most demanding people.
As a result, we find a new residential A-cero´s work without aesthetic shrillness that invites to lived it so much, overall because its elegance, sophistication and functionality.”
