New Modern Concrete House in Madrid Resembles A Bunker. But What A Bunker!

Concrete House II

One of the most popular posts ever featured on this blog was that of a large concrete home in Poland by kwk promes, whose sliding walls and ominous exterior resembled a modern fortress. This recent project, Concrete House II, from Spain’s architecture firm, Joaquin Torres’ A-Cero, gives that sanctuary a run for its money with its wild bunker-like appearance. This modern concrete house in Madrid features giant angular planes inside and out.

Externally, the home has an austere appearance. Dark grey concrete angled walls replete with landscaping allude to an underground residence, although the home is above ground.

Inside, the home has a surprising amount of light and echoes the exterior with its angular kitchen counters, desks and faceted furnishings. Along with a modern kitchen, a formal dining room, den and office, bedrooms and baths, the home has a screening room and ambient lit underground parking garage. Great attention is given to both the interior and exterior lighting, utilizing spot lighting and concealed ledge lighting.

The kitchen features very unusual counters, island, table, and range hood whose slopes and planes are reminiscent of the residence’s exterior design:
