Somosaguas is the result a commission that Studio MK27 received to create a gated community of houses on the outskirts of Madrid.

Somosaguas is an "anti-crisis" project, built in response to a high demand for housing. With 21 houses in total, four different sized houses were designed following the 1.25m building module, and from these, there are 21 different configurations. Each house is unique. The Somosaguas project is a meta-project. The permeable occupation of an urban block can be replicated on any other urban land in any other city.
