House H in Madrid is a sprawling private residence that offers a variety of spaces and environments, each bathed in luscious natural light. Design studio Abiboo Architecture conceived the building as a modern, luxury villa integrated with the expansive site located near a prestigious golf course. The home resemles a puzzle with many interlocking, puzzle-like micros-spaces that provide privacy and a variety of functions.
The house was designed for a well-known sports figure, with plenty of luxurious amenities. The ground floor accommodates the usual set of main living spaces, along with several patios that make the 14,000-square-foot house appear even bigger than it already is.
The first floor houses a flexible office space, guestroom, and play area for kids, while recreational and entertainment spaces like meditation rooms, gym, spa, and party areas occupy the basement level. On the outside, the facades of the main spaces are clad in stucco and feature prominent glass surfaces, while exposed concrete marks the position of the auxiliary spaces. A metallic, light-reflecting finish is features on the outside of the private quarters.
