This project proposes the construction of two parallel blocks instead of the enclosed precinct recommended by the Vallecas Expansion Area planning regulations. The uneven conditions in the surrounding area and the allotment’s urban context and aspect made this layout advisable with a view to permitting the construction of better homes with nice views and improved orientations.Save this picture!The two blocks, formed in turn by two equally parallel blocks, are aligned with the outer ends of the allotment, leaving a large garden area in the middle.Save this picture!© Duccio MalagambaIn this arrangement, some of the homes face outwards and others overlook the garden. All have two outer facades, ensuring natural cross-ventilation and lighting for every part of the dwelling.Save this picture!© Duccio MalagambaThe diversity of the exterior situations outside the homes obviously generates a diversity of skins. Smooth, continuous walls are pierced by long windows on the outer wall, while corridors run along the inner wall protected by aluminium uprights, providing views of the garden and framing a dynamic, changing landscape.Save this picture!© Duccio MalagambaParking and storage spaces are below ground level. In the project, these areas are set directly beneath the apartment blocks, despite the enormous difficulty entailed in sharing the same structural framework, in order to free up the space between the blocks and shape a real garden by planting tall trees.Save this picture!© Duccio MalagambaThe two blocks are by no means identical. One of them has an angled cut at one end that adapts to the allotment geometry where it faces the traffic roundabout. At the other end, a subtraction operation on the volume marks the entrance to the complex.Save this picture!The apartment distribution strives to ensure more versatile and qualified interior spaces that comply with the functional organization requirements set out in the brief and the planning regulations, as well as permitting greater spatial and structural flexibility for alternative uses of the homes.Save this picture!© Duccio MalagambaProject gallerySee allShow lessGallery: Mystical Photos of an Abandoned Chinese VillageMiscCall for Submissions: New Ideas for Housing LondonArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Avenida Ensanche de Vallecas, Madrid, Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.
