Despite its urban character, Madrid’s metropolitan area harbors highly valuable protected natural spaces, like the Mount of El Pardo, In it you can find heritage buildings built more than half a century ago that currently have the opportunity to be rehabilitated with a sustainable and responsible approach. This project is located in one of these historical buildings; a single-family semi-detached house of 180 m² over three floors.

This renovation centered around improving the energetic efficiency and optimizing the building’s space. On the ground, a set of multifunctional spaces were created, such as kitchen-dining room, integrated with the living room which provide excellent lighting and ventilation through large windows on opposite facades. The relationship between the interior and exterior is diluted through large windows located on opposite facades, favoring cross ventilation and guaranteeing optimal lighting conditions throughout the year.

Bush-hammered granite from the Madrid mountains was used for the pavement, to achieve a more efficient functioning in winter and maintain coolness in summer. Also, new closings were put in place alongside thermal insulation throughout the perimeter to reduce energetic losses. The interior swimming pool, surrounded with vegetation, favors “evaporative cooling” in summer. These passive strategies promote an efficient bioclimatic performance and provide the home with warmth.
