Madriguera House By Lado Blanco Arquitecturas - Sheet2Casa Madriguera is a weekend retreat located in a rural setting surrounded by mountains and rivers. “La Madriguera” blends harmoniously with local materials by using reclaimed stone and roof tiles from derelict buildings, establishing a dialogue between the new construction and the existing materiality.

It is a very personal project that looks for a calm haven, with the aim of slowing down and attend to small details to enjoy the pleasure of observing.

Furniture is reduced to modest pieces and bespoke elements designed by the studio.
