MO House by FRPO, in Madrid

The rooms of this wooden house in a forest near Madrid by local architects FRPO branch off in different directions to slot into gaps between the trees.

FRPO was asked to design a family home that was sensitive to its natural environs and chose to distribute the rooms across the site in a series of interconnected boxes.

"The powerful presence of the trees and the wish to have a house integrated in the woods led to a disaggregated solution," said the architects.

The building is constructed from cross-laminated wood panels that remove the need for destructive foundations and provide excellent thermal insulation.

From an entrance at the centre of the plan, corridors branch off towards the master bedroom and two rooms for the family's children at one end of the house, and a kitchen, dining area and living room at the other end.
