House in La Moraleja an incredible modern residence that has been designed by  for their clients in La Moraleja, Spain. The architects were given the task to design a permanent residence for a family of five on a spacious plot of land that contains a circular wall allowing the residents to enjoy the outdoor spaces with privacy. Upon entrance to the imposing home, contemporary open spaces offer the residents areas to conjugate, such as a library, games room, dining room, guest bedroom and service area.  On the first floor, there are four bedrooms with patios, a gym and study. One of the requested requirements was that all rooms and social areas should have landscape views, open to the garden area, the view should never be to the street, despite the reduced front and the need for functional independence of program areas, parents, children, guests, social and service areas.

In a generic world, increasingly away from nature, this house was projected combining the uniqueness of the place with the express wishes of  the client who wants to protect his privacy but remain in permanent with the outside world as a private space. Wishes that in time and space are hardly compatible.

To achieve the desired privacy a circular wall that  surrounds the rear of the house has been designed, it creates a series of private patios protected from the public outdoor space, blurring and expanding the actual limits of the plot.

The access is hidden away between the parallel walls, it generates an intricate walk leading you to the entrance courtyard where the house shows its true magnitude.

Every element is ordered around a set of intersecting axes in plant on the circular wall, articulating public and private areas around outdoor space, this appears as an extension of their own construction.
