House C is a great family home, placed on a spectacular site with views to Madrid Mountains, near to a golf field, with a strong slope and multiple holms oaks on it. Client always wanted to live on a way that all his home could be used without discriminate any area from the others, a family life, a close life.

Program was quite complex and large, and the site had a lot of opportunities and special corners, so we decided spread the program on a “star shape”, allowing the landscape to seep through every corner and getting that every star arm enjoys its own singular views.

The house is therefore like a “Swiss Army Knife” with different customized bodies starting from a common central point.
