We started the construction of a residential building for a real estate fund, located between Bravo Murillo and Aníbal streets, in Madrid. Ubicca developed the architecture and construction of this project.
The project faces the challenge of accommodating the maximum number of residences possible, considering the normative restrictions of the area. The volume adapts to the scale of Bravo Murillo and Aníbal streets and responds, with its facade, in a different way to each of them.
The corner of the building becomes an almost dematerialized edge through the arrangement of angled windows, which amplify the views and take advantage of the site conditions.
The ventilated facade is made of prefabricated panels with relief, arranged in such a way that their surface changes according to the incidence of sunlight, turning it into a lively and variable plane. The black corrugated sheet metal plinth serves as a visual and conceptual support, and behind it is a large corner store almost completely open to the street.
The spaces are arranged in a non-repetitive but harmonious rhythm, varying in size, layout and format according to the needs of the interior of the house and generating an exterior richness materialized in overhangs, balconies, galleries and terraces.
The dwellings are articulated around a central service core with wet rooms, surrounded by living spaces, all bathed in natural light and maximizing their relationship with the exterior.
This is a project that is being developed with Leed Gold standards. In this sense, local materials are being used, which are produced at a maximum distance of 800 kilometers.
In addition, the facade will be insulated in order to achieve a passive behavior of the building. In other words, the building will be perfectly sheltered, reducing energy demand and increasing the sustainability of the project.
It should also be noted that the building will be made with a high percentage of recycled and recyclable materials.
Finally, an autonomous energy production plant will be built on the roof, a small photovoltaic power plant, allowing for self-consumption of electricity.
