Montecarmelo Townhouses Family Housing


Architecture, Building and Structure Design Montecarmelo Townhouses Family Housing by Joaquín If you think on all those terraced houses in Madrid, images of monotony and alignment come to mind quickly. The urban planning that governs Madrid´s neighbourhoods is a cage for creativity, a factory of the same. This is why we used for this project the design techniques of Dalí s Paranoid Critical Method: let the imagination fly to escape from restrictions. The main idea was born thinking of traditional sun protection systems, such as esparto blinds, that can be found in vernacular architecture in southern Spain, and build brick "blinds" protecting the façades.
