Simple and magnificent, the concrete structure of Pitch’s House develops over a great slope, and is propped against two large granite rocks, one integrated structurally and the other articulated as the main access to the villa.

The view of Madrid’s countryside is of wide scope. The open spaces designed by Carnicero are ample and contoured by simple, elongated glass that on the first floor looks onto an infinity edge pool.

The walls and ceilings have not been treated, with the cement well in view and the floor in calcareus stone.
