House in Madrid Built with 7 Shipping Containers

Hi everybody

We continue to discover for you. Our container house on today’s tour is from Sierra, Madrid, Spain.

Enjoy the flight of the eagles above your head while you relax on a deck chair by the pool on a sunny spring morning … OR summer … OR Autumn … OR Winter … Eagles fly all year round, and on this home owners also relax throughout the year.

This house can be said to be a dream come true, a dream in white and chocolate. After long talks with clients, and after capturing several sketches, we came up with the basic premises to design a custom home that meets all the wishes of its owners.

With its 180 square meters, 30 of garage and almost another 30 of terrace. This house is distributed in a spacious living-dining room of more than 50 square meters, an office kitchen of more than 20 square meters with a utility room and machine room, and a suite-style bedroom with an open dressing room and an integrated bathroom.

All this on the ground floor. On the first floor, a double bedroom with its own bathroom and spectacular views of the Sierra de Madrid was installed. A wide program of needs for an isolated home in which the true luxury is space and light.

Two basic premises marked our line of work. The minimalism of the design is reflected in very simple straight lines with a predominance of white and the perfect touch of chocolate that bathes the floors. Also designed to be practical, a daily table was integrated into the kitchen inside the island to be able to enjoy a good family stew on cold winter days.

Separating the living room and kitchen, the protagonist is a bioethanol fireplace open to both spaces, which lights up our clients’ evenings to enjoy their visits. On the other side of the living room, the staircase over an interior garden made of white stone seems to fly over the whole to the first floor. The night areas also have great interior space. But the true luxury of this house is in the light, which bathes it from dawn to dusk.

The large windows that run along the main facade of the house directly link the interior and exterior spaces, so that you can enjoy the garden in both winter and summer, turning the terrace into an extension of the kitchen.

The facade, finished in white SATE and brushstrokes in chocolate, maintains the premises set in the original design by the property, also conferring a continuous layer of insulation that provides the home with great comfort.

To top it all off, the pool with a salt chlorinator keeps the waters crystal clear all year round, being a decorative element during winter and allowing you to enjoy placid baths in summer.

Dreams sometimes come true, and it’s amazing to be lucky enough to be able to make them come true.
