Dark And Light Space Composition Shaping Volumetric Architecture

 The simple volumetric architecture displayed by this contemporary residence shows its uncomplicated desire to offer modern comfort to the owners. Named the Gomez Residence, this black and white beauty consists of volumes gathered around the main circulations. This floor plan separates the public areas from the private ones, composing a set of spaces created to become the two parts of a whole – the solitary moments meet entertaining friends under the same roof. Completed in 2011, the Gomez Residence occupies 400 square meters on an urban site in Boadilla del Monte, Madrid, Spain.
This dream home designed by Marta González Architects showcases an inspiring combination of dark and light, of transparency and opacity. Interiors connect to the outside through large dark framed windows and transparent details can be seen in the staircase and the choice for kitchen chairs and details. The double-height living space is bright and open, fabricating an inviting black and white atmosphere, pierced by colored details, as opposed to the kitchen, where the low ceiling and stainless steel throne over the light-flooded space captured in between dark walls. Do you like this battle of dark and white composing the inviting residential space?
