Architecture Design of Szoke House
Description About The Project
Szoke House designed by Aranguren Gallegos Arquitectos, located on the southern slopes of Monte Abantos. The house adapt the owner’s demand for the house which blends with the natural environment. Also, making the most out of the landscape around it.
Hence, to meet the aim of the project, the house fragmented into a sequence of small connected volumes. That settle into fairly steep land in order to achieve a small-scale object that blends with the ground, especially in the upper part of the plot. The texture and color of the house, made of rusted corten steel, merges with the granite stoned ground darkened by erosion as well as the reddish tones of the pine trees. In addition to this, the house turns toward the Northeast as well, with a large porch that faces the Domes of the Monastery and it’s opened on two fronts to take advantage of the cool air currents from the pine forest.
Once insides, the lowest area of the house contains an office, a games room, a workshop, a guest master bedroom, a laundry room, storage, and a utility room. Besides, the main level divided by the access to the house into two areas: the sleeping area to the left and the kitchen, the living dining room area, and the library to the right, making the latter the highest volume and the space with the best views of the house.

Text by the Architects: Szoke House is located on the southern slopes of Monte Abantos, at San Lorenzo de El Escorial, a small town close to the city of Madrid. Monte Abantos is full of pine trees and stands out for its unevenness and its rocky areas. The aim of the project is to ensure that the house blends with the natural environment it settles in and to make the most out of the landscape around it: La Herrería forest to the southwest and the Royal Site of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, a basilica and royal palace from the 16th century to the east.
