In 2007 the architecture office Subarquitectura
( Andrés Silanes + Fernando Valderrama + Carlos Bañón
) was presented with a challenge. The challenge was put forward by client Arco Design & Projects
and it brought these architects the task of having to construct a house with a public programme of social relation, associated with the private life of a numerous family on a sloping plot of land with privileged views of the mountains outside Madrid, Spain
. Their initial approach was seeking poetry within works of engineering, the outcome was sculptural motion.
