Built on 2600 square meters on the outskirts of Madrid, this stunning home, The Open Box House, takes its inspiration from the iconic sculptures of Jorge Oteiza. The architecture is by Joaquin Torres and Raphael Llamazares and the interior design was completed by A-cero.
Like Oteiza’s more contemporary sculptures, the home has differing sizes of hollow rectangles, the dark gray slabs giving the architecture distinctive masculine traits. The house has three storeys, and inside the rooms are furnished in historic Roman fashion brand Fendi, with luxurious gray, beige and dark brown color tones.
Not only a private residence, on the first floor there is a bookstore. On the ground floor is the garage, toilets, kitchen and staff room. There are four private rooms and the bookshop on the first floor, with bedrooms and living space on the top floor.
Stepping outside the back yard has a large swimming pool which is surrounded by a Japanese garden, also designed by A-Cero. Here, one can wonder the tranquil grounds and marvel at the architecture and discover new hidden sculptures around the property.
