A Modern Take on the Castle

A Modern Take on the Castle

9 November, 2013  |  Exterior, House Interior

Complete with a moat themed waterfall, stairs designed to resemble a drawbridge, and an exterior made up of slat gray blocks, this home in Madrid fully represents the contemporary castle. Although royalty does not reside inside this house in Madrid, Italy, the designs set forth by architectural firm A-cero playfully deconstruct the castle as we know it. Winding, circular stairs are encased in dull metal. Under the dining room table rests an area rug that resembles cold marble. Rather than take a literal approach, many elements in this home are representative. A home movie theater boasts plus chairs, a large screen and recessed lighting. There aren’t many homeowners commissioning architects to recreate and modernize the castle, but this house masterfully tackles this fun theme.
