Detail Modern House in Avila by A-cero Architects

In Avila, Spain, A-cero Architects designed this expansive modern abode to take advantage of the surrounding natural landscape and reinterpret local vernacular and layout. To incorporate traditional architectural cues, A-cero kept the all living spaces on a single level, arranging them in a lengthened u-shape around a central courtyard.

A dwelling of generous proportions developed over a single storey to facilitate the indoor-outdoor connection and to make the most of the environment in which it stands. Surrounded by meadows, tree groves, chestnut, pine and oak trees and wildlife represented by stags, wild boar and roe deer, the edifice establishes a recognised link with the traditional architecture and vernacular customs. The sense of the architecture is to formalise the space and layout of the rooms besides representing a clear tribute to rural villages. The consequence is an open, U-shaped dwelling with a large central courtyard that shares out the uses.

Though tradition played an important role, the overall impression of the home is thoroughly modern. A massive, cantilevered awning is the most prominent exterior feature, enhancing the elongated, low-slung nature of the design. Indoors there is a consistency in its development that offers us serene, private ambiences full of nuances and subtleties. The house generates its own environment and assimilates the best of what there is.
