malu de miguel splits brick + concrete family house in madrid in two separate pavilions

spanish architect malu de miguel has a built a two-story family house in boadilla del monte, madrid, combining textured concrete and brick in its exterior and interior spaces. the residence is configured in two pavilions to accommodate the three generations of family members, while most of it is developed on the ground floor, with a much smaller upper level that wraps around the double-height living room of the larger volume.malu de miguel splits brick + concrete family house in madrid in two separate pavilionsall images by imagen subliminal (miguel de guzmán + rocío romero)

 

 

malu de miguel has opened up the front of the house toward the street, forming an open area that serves as a parking lot for guests while creating a small expansion of public space, similar to a small square. the house itself is split in two separate volumes to accommodate a family formed by three generations, while the organization inside does not follow the typical distribution of ‘master bedrooms’ and ‘children bedrooms’, but instead allows the inhabitants to choose freely which room to occupy.malu de miguel splits brick + concrete family house in madrid in two separate pavilions

 

 

the residence is characterized by shaded areas and a continuous flow between inside and outside, where one can run from one end to the other, up and down the stairs, with no designated routes. in terms of materiality, the house incorporates two main materials: wood formwork textured concrete, whose texture creates a friendly, warm impression; and rustic brickwork with mortar of similar thickness to that of the brick, which recalls historic factories. brick has been used on the exterior walls and in all interior partitions, as well as in windows, shelves, and bathrooms.
