Alberto Campo Baeza acclaimed Spanish architect runs his namesake architectural practice in Madrid. Besides leading widely appreciated studio, he also works as a Professor in the Madrid School of Architecture, ETSAM for over 35 years.
Presented below, Raumplan House is located on a sloping plot with a spectacular view on Camarines, Madrid. On first storey, the building does not make a big impression, whereas the higher floors emerge the picturesque urban landscape of the east Madrid. As to enjoy these wonderfully framed views, the architects situated up there most commonly used space of the house.
The architects set up the layout of the house in the dimension of 12x12m, divided into four same sized squares. Followed by this decision, the zero ground was designed square by square, with a simple helicoidal movement. The areas of double height crosses with one another creating diagonal and helicoidal spaces. As the team of Alberto Campo Baeza concludes: “The result very well explains the proposal we set out with, namely that 2+2+2 is more than just 6.”
