A lot bordered by a beautiful olive grove is perfect to fulfill the desire of the young couple commissioning the construction of Casa a Pedrezuela, near Madrid: a three-bedroom home where they can live, build their future and work remotely

The House in Pedrezuela is designed by Slow Studio starting from this ideal lot with an elongated shape, southern exposure and a slight slope from the street to a completely flat area where the house can expand. The distribution of spaces follows a simple rectangular plan scheme in which rooms follow one another in sequence from the most public to the most private, divided by a courtyard that improves natural lighting and ventilation

The south façade is also protected by a plant pergola that helps to increase privacy and acts as an excellent natural regulator of sunlight. One of the key points of the bioclimatic strategy, in addition to excellent insulation of the building envelope, is the fact that all rooms face south: a peculiarity that allows excellent passive thermal performance of all living spaces

On the north side, on the other hand, service spaces such as bathrooms and technical compartments create a thermal buffer zone that separates the more lived-in rooms from the cooler façade, which is created with a few openings protected by wooden shutters. In terms of construction, the house has a double brick wall with cavity insulation and an inverted roof. The windows and doors are made of wood, as are the kitchen and bathroom cabinets
