Masterpiece of St. Bernardo



One of the most famous buildings by Fernando Higueras Díaz (1930-2008) is this ensemble of buildings for a military living-association, erected between 1968 and 1974. This house beside the roundabout of San Bernardo shows the main themes Higueras used to employ in his buildings: white concrete and plants all over the house. All the construction occupies a extended site, that is why Higueras decided to split the building and introduce a small street in the backyard.
