Santander House by A-Cero
Based in Santander / Spain, this house was designed by architects from A-Cero. This 2,204 sq. m. house features all possible rooms needed for contemporary lifestyle. There are garage, laundry, pantry, several bathrooms, kitchen, dining area, office, games room, small library with home cinema, 2 kids bedrooms and master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe. The house is located on a skewed rectangular plot, with a gradient of around 1 in 3 and covering 2,204m2. The plot is bordered on the south by the access road, to the north and east by other properties and the west by a pedestrian pathway. The project evolves, embracing the surroundings via a set of 3 very simple rectangular volumes, a large longitudinal central core from which two others protrude, angled slightly to the west and setting sun, one at ground level and the second, housing the master bedroom upstairs. The focus of the design was to maximize views of the river Miera to the South.
