Caledonian Somosaguas in Madrid, Spain by Studio MK27

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

Article source: Studio MK27

Urban or suburban?  The problem in creating new housing on the edge of the city is to somehow synthesise all of these seeming opposites – not to choose between them but to lift a little from them all to create a new cocktail of the familiar and the foreign, the everyday and the exotic.
