Our project is located just one hour away from the city, in the Natural Park Sierra de Guadarrama. In this case we were confronted with the challenge of devising the perfect retreat to get away from Madrid’s daily grind, to unwind from its frantic everyday pace and enjoy a weekend of peace and quiet in an impeccable natural environment. Such essential principles have guided the creation of this cottage, which promotes a different approach to holidays: a less consumerist and more environmentally friendly one.

In these exceptional surroundings emerges Casa Otea, a 35-square-meter cottage with a vernacular design, harmoniously integrated with the area’s topography.

Mostly prefabricated, this home stands upon the distinctive local granite rock. Its dark wood façade rises to a local-slate hip roof. Access to the cottage is gained through an ample terrace leading onto an integrated space, which joins toilet, kitchen, bedroom and living room. This is all supplemented with ample windows which become the dazzling canvases of living landscapes.

Throughout the building process, priority has been given to sustainability and the careful use of materials. Each element has been handpicked to provide a warm and cozy experience in harmony with the environment. Noble and sustainable materials have been selected, such as pine wood, clay and micro-cement, in order to grant this cottage a natural and durable look.
