The Concrete House II (9pics)





Wow.... not only is this house amazing, the concrete structure could also probably double as a bomb shelter! 
Check out more pics below: 


Located in Madrid, the Concrete House II is a single family home designed by A-cero.
The first sensation that this house produces when people go into the plot is that the building seems to be hidden between concrete walls and vegetable ramps that extend up to the roof. They are dyed in dark gray and contain, between them, vegetation areas that seem to climb towards the sky. The house´s façade show a spectacular organic view of the whole house and so even the hard concrete shows its most kind face. 

The back front of the house is totally opened towards the garden where the lounge, dining room, library, study and bedrooms are. In this façade the wide windows, the volumes set and the projections (made of concrete too enhance.  These elements cover the several house´s porches. The large window of the main lounge hides itself automatically in order to make this stay completely opened to the exterior areas.
The ecological aspect is very in this A-cero’s work: the façade and the roof have the main ecological roles because they are covered with low consume vegetation. Furthermore on the house´s roof has been implemented a renewable energy system made of wide surfaces with solar tubular collectors who allow that the energy autonomy of the house.
What are your thoughts...? Too much concrete for your taste??

These are great designs. I'm impressed with the total architectural structures of these houses. I love the idea of combining different materials to create a concrete and very beautiful houses. I can't imagine myself living in one of these houses.

I'm amazed with the style and design of the house both exterior and interior. I've noticed that the table has an inclination plane design. It's very unique and attractive. The ladder looks great as well. It's not the common ladder that can be found among houses and buildings. This house looks like a dream house.

Great feedback...!
When it comes to non-traditional materials for a residential home like concrete, this home takes it to another level. It's amazing what can be done with concrete. Well done :)

I agree with you. It's really taking the home to the next and innovative level of home construction and design. I'm also stunned by the garage. The idea of putting lights on the floor is just awesome. I'd love to make this design as my ideal interior design for my house.
