Fran Silvestre Arquitectos is a studio based in Valencia made up a multidisciplinary group of architects founded in 2005 by architect Fran Silvestre. The studio’s latest project the Aluminum House is a minimalist structure situated within the metropolis of Madrid, Spain.
The Aluminum House is encircled by gardens with big trees providing both shade and plenty of oxygen. But it’s the aluminum outer shell which draws attention and makes the house stand out. Clad in highly reflective aluminum, the façade fuses with its backdrop, becoming part of the natural landscape. Furthermore, the design of the metallic house combines materials like stone, glass and metal, with indoor and outdoor living areas melded together perfectly.
Inside The Aluminum House there are large windows throughout, widespread marble flooring and minimalist bathrooms. Rooms are connected with a staircase and central atrium which rises through the core of the building, allowing views from the house to open towards the garden at the rear. A central atrium and marble staircase are perhaps its the most daring amenities, as many things, including a second mini kitchen, are hidden behind closed cabinet doors. The ground floor of the project emerges from the stone slab, while the upper level is oriented north/south. rooms are connected with a staircase and central atrium which rises through the core of the building, allowing views from the house to open towards the garden at the rear.
