Interesting House in Spain
In 2009 ÁBATON Architecture Studio did a project called Almanzora and received Asprima-Sima award for the best private housing development in Spain. It is a group of 10 independent houses united in two buildings. One of them leading to the street making connection with neighborhood and another one doesn’t relate to any of the neighboring properties, but leaves no observer indifferent.
Award Winning Almanzora House in Spain
Each of ten homes has its own private swimming pools, landscape terraces, and fireplaces.
A circular building was made to maximize south facing of the house to take all sunny days from the Spanish climate.
As ÁBATON, company which has created Almanzona project, has a strong responsibility to the sustainability. Almanzora houses are full of greenery from the central courtyard to landscaped rooftops.
Speaking about creators of this project, ÁBATON Architecture Studio was established in 1998 in Spain by Camino Alonso, Ignacio Lechón and Carlos Alonso. Studio monitors the operations of all projects in all areas starting from designing concepts to the final result’s control. And they pay a lot of attention to the ecology. Even rainwater in their projects returns to the to the land to maintain the natural dampness.
ÁBATON has been recently awarded the Torre Sostenible Prize as a recognition for its special consideration with sustainability parameters.
ÁBATON’s Almanzora project is very unlike any standard urban European model of construction, and it puts a noticeable impact on the modern Madrid view of the city.
