Minimalist Avilés-Ramos Residence by Ceres A+D


Granada-based architectural practice, Ceres A+D, has designed the Avilés-Ramos project. The architecturally stunning home is located in Albolote, Granada, Spain.

This minimalist home belongs to a couple with no children who wanted a home with open spaces, to develop their own independent living spaces for work.


According to the architects: “The couple wanted bright interiors, although with some control of the sun in the hotter months, and directly communicated with the outside area, to extend the home for the long periods that the weather allows in this latitude.

“The office translated the demands of the owners to the project, watching the construction systems and studying the factors that affect various aspects of the process, taking advantage of building orientation and scale of the piece of land, developing a set of clear clean volumes in response to different spaces the program established.

“The owners like to arrange gatherings, parties and other events with friends and family, so the house has been designed on two levels, the main one, an almost unique space and very open to the outside, and the upper level, more exclusive and intimate, enhancing the value on the communication between them along the shared common volume. Both levels have a distinct compositional response in the elevations, the upper level as a broken but continuous body, leaning on the lower boxes that respond to the different uses of the main level. This lower level is composed by those containers each housing a different use, separated by axis of physical and visual communication between the two strips of ground.”
