Located in Aranjuez, Madrid, Spain, the Zafra-Uceda House was designed by the NO.MAD architectural practice in 2009 on a golf course and it features an impressive façade with a daring geometry that adapts to the site’s condition.
The designers placed the living areas on the upper level to reduce the empty character of the surroundings and offer glimpses of the distant mountain landscape. The bedroom is also on the upper level and it is oriented toward the old city and the river, while the kitchen and exterior terrace maintain a constant connection with the garden.
The upper levels ensure privacy through the use of two enclosed terraces that have cactus gardens and are only opened upwards, while the interior was designed in a very contemporary open floor style without any doors and a double height area in the center. There is an iridescent polycarbonate wall which changes colors with the light reflecting through a mirroring wall to create the impression of an even larger interior.
