Designed for two sisters and their families by the architecture firm Arenas Basabe Palacios, the villas reflect their owners; they both have obvious common characteristics, but with different personalities. One of the houses is differentiated with Accoya wood, used for the joinery and exterior cladding.
Following similar design processes, a white concrete wall system elevates the upper floor with large bay windows overlooking the gardens. Used on one villa for joinery, Accoya frames the different views of the exterior landscapes.
In contrast to the neutral white lines of the exterior walls and floor, the Accoya wood is also applied in exterior cladding.
Ideal for the sunny climate of Madrid, specified by Accoya distributor GAMIZ, the Accoya cladding does not deform or warp. With superb durability, the natural colour of the Accoya is showcased without any finish, guaranteed against rot and decay for 50 years above ground and 25 years below ground.
