Travertine Stone House From A-Cero Features Color
Spanish architecture firm A-Cero Architecture has long been known for its strict minimalist color scheme.
Any material that they’ve used that has not been white – has always been black.
And in their latest, a gorgeous house near Madrid, there’s lots of black and white.
But for the first time, they have added a few exquisite colors to their minimal palette.
The entire house has been faced in travertine stone, with all of the subtle color variations in that natural material.
In the interior, A-Cero include not just their signature black and white, but also the subtle shades of travertine stone, a sort of not quite white.
And their blacks are loosening up, too. A sophisticated black glass around the stairs almost seems as sheer as black nylon stockings.
The imposing two story living room, while black and white, has the relief of a natural stone floor.
In the chic black and white dressing room, lighting under the inset black closet area makes them appear to be floating over the stone floor.
The black and white bedrooms bring a touch of brown to the walls above the beds.
Outdoors, a turquoise pool and the various putty shades of travertine rule the view.
Gorgeous layered slabs of travertine create a crisp and luxurious finish to the texture of the turquoise water.
Perhaps this time, the architect’s brief came from the client’s daughter?
Sequestered in the depths of this chic and expensive house is a blazing riot of the loud pinks and purples that is so beloved by so many little girls, whether rich or poor.
