Contemporary Oak Grove home by Murado & Elvira Arquitectos


Madrid-based architecture and design studio, Murado & Elvira Arquitectos, has designed the Oak Grove project. Completed in 2007, the contemporary family home is located Badajoz, Spain.

According to the firm: “This house deals with the desire for a simultaneous contemplation of the fireplace and the sunset and with nature turned into a domestic object of affection. It intertwines construction and natural environment in order to stress the relationship with an oak grove full of family memories.


“The contemporary house should be completely closed when nobody is home, and very open when the owners go to enjoy nature. It is a house that is bigger when it is open and smaller when closed.


“The sliding doors give shadows to the surroundings of the house to create areas of comfort in a very hot summer.


“The aromatic garden inside the porch, dividing the barbecue area and the living room area.


“The fireplace is integrated in a deep and wide window that faces west, allowing the users to watch the sunset while sitting before the fire.

“Shades can be placed in different ways during the different hours of the day.”
