Chiaroscuro House


The Chiaroscuro house designed by architect Marcos Samaniego, from Mas Arquitectura studio, is reflected in the stark contrast between the pure white walls and the black color we can find on the floor, curtains and carpentry. The house´s bright atmosphere is an oasis for its tenants.

Natural light is the distinctive sign of this house built on A Coruña (Spain). The design includes large windows in order to make the most of the brightness of this area.

Built on a plot only nine meters wide, a three-story house built with large windows that spread natural light all around the rooms. The commitment to create a bright interior design is reflected in a skylight which cross the house perpendicularly, from the top floor to the living room, found on the grand floor, developing a geometric play of light and shades.

Inside, the sequence of open spaces avoids corridors, maximizing the flow of movement around the rooms, all built with terraces. Having only one flight of stairs, improves the movement between each floor.

  1. I agree with Texas. The color palette for the interior is kind of bland. I would feel kind of dead in there. Maybe if black wasn’t painted on the concrete or if it were a glossy black then the house would look more lively.
