Shaping concrete the way it was needed for Casavars to be ready (Casavars is our new Madrid home) was extremely hard. As a result this 2 year construction project turned out to be a 4 year ordeal. But all is well when it ends well, and now the family is in. We are 4 kids, 2 grown ups. They say that molecules in gases adapt to the volume of the container. So does my family. Friends keep coming by. Here are more pictures.

Great house full of natural lighting.
Martin, are these ramps to go upstairs, avoiding steps ?? What a dream.

Yes, the house has all ramps, almost no steps. My 12 yr old skateboarding instincts will have to be kept at bay.

Nice house, congratulations. You’ll need a fence around the swimingpool, it’s a must when you have babies. Trust me, I learned it the hard way. :S

Amazing. I’m wheelchair motorized, that’s exactly the kind of design I dreamt of since I saw “paradis pour tous”, last Patrick Dawaere’s movie where he plays a handicaped character and live in a 70’s designed house with integrated ramps 🙂
Skateboarding is a great option 🙂

Yes Luca, I owe bedrooms and baths, but I left them out cause I felt that my readers should only enter the public spaces…
