Spanish architects DAHL&GHG designed this house in northern Madrid so that every room faces the garden (+ slideshow).

Named Vivienda en la Moraleja, which translates as Housing in the Moral, the two-storey building is the residence for a family of five.

The clients requested that every room should look out across the garden and that no spaces should face out onto the street.

To achieve this, DAHL&GHG laid out the rooms on a cross-shaped plan, surrounded by a semi-circular perimeter wall.

Living rooms were placed on the ground floor, while most of the bedrooms are located upstairs.

The architects describe the house as being "inspired by the idea of a volcano", where rooms open out to the garden in "an explosion of light and visual connections".

This is created with large openings in the rear facade, which reveal living rooms and terraces. A swimming pool stretches out in front.
