Matilde Ucelay Maortua. Single-family house for Vincente Sebastian Llegat

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


Between 1931 and 1936, the Second Republic in Spain was proclaimed. A social and political model consolidated as one of the most prolific according the artistic point of view. The new democratic regime brought many basic rights for women as the chance to complete their university studies. An emblematic figure of the cultural and architectural revolution of Spain was Matilde Ucelay Maortua. The project here analyzed is the house of Vicente Sebastián Llegat in Pradolargo-Pozuelo de Alarcón, of 1968. Matilde Ucelay designed a building with two levels, a large garden, a swimming pool and the outside porch marking the environment of the L-structure of the house. The critical redrawing of the Ucelay’s project highlights her way of conceiving architecture with organic shapes and fluid spaces open to new artistic frontiers.
