The architects at Bernalte-León y Asociados have designed this highly sculptural design formed from copper planes cantilevered from a vertical concrete spine “Clip House” located in Madrid, Spain.
This awesome clip house design has been shortlisted for the 2009 Copper in Architecture Awards. The winner will be announced on September 29 at a ceremony held in London.
The plan of this clip house was strongly conditioned by the life-style of the client and his work in the field of advertising, with its requirements for creativity.
The building process is based on a rational module system with a sequence of tolled steel foils anchored to the concrete wall (to both frameworks where allowing the passage of the ducts), this shaping the development of the foils.
The installations have been inserted between the outer and the inner framework thanks to a process of excellent workmanship guaranteed by the builder in order to achieve a flawless integration in the architectural elements.
The furnishing and decoration of the spaces was one of the main worries of our client, which gave way to a personal and eclectic result, based on the architecture on the whole, which definitely responds to the personality of the client himself.
