The Serrano Penthouse which is based in Madrid, Spain is designed by the Spanish architect Hector Ruiz Velázquez. The wall inside the apartment is flat and orthogonal. The usual separation of the spaces inside the apartment is the solved issue which the architect did in this project. The introduction troncoconicos of the elements which go from the floor to ceiling.
Those elements is imposes their strong volumetric, it is acquiring the range of the massive object, individualized, therefore with their own personality. A sensation of the continuity can be obtained by perceiving these objects as interposed pieces. As the spectator is moving through to the house and never sees the end of each volume and really the totality of the house. All of it is gives the spectator some sensations which the house is much bigger than it really is.
The curved volumes have the ability to lead the light; it is by provoking the rebound which is like a fluid that goes throw the house, they really flood the house with the light, besides, it also illuminating in each interior space inside the house. Those shapes itself do not try to shelter or contain any space; because they have not been designed to shelter paces of the permanency or the ecstatic rooms. They are surfaces which is reinforces the internal movements of the house, not only of the visitor but also the light, to appreciate a continuous change of form and light can be found by walking through the space, with the contrast of the soft perspective which is at the same time is so powerful. This contrast is the one which is offering a continuous life inside the space. This geometric freedom is offered by the curve, besides it is allows taking the maximum advantage of the m2 of the floor plant and turns this house into a place without any dead spaces.
