MG08 is an architectural intervention that yields a flexible dwelling, divisible into different units in accordance with the needs of the residents.

The Madrid firm BURR proposes a departure from the deep-rooted concept of ‘building a home for a whole lifetime’ through a house that can be adapted to the owners’ changing socioeconomic circumstances and address their future needs. MG08 thus opens up a wide range of possible ways to occupy one same ground-level space that previously served va-rious purposes (industrial, commercial, sports), the memory of which is deliberately evoked through the chosen gamut of materials.

María Guerrero is a house split into two. It currently harbors two dwellings, each with a patio of its own, enabling the proprietors to inhabit one half and rent out the other, and in that way shoulder the costs of acquisition and construction. In future the wall separating the two homes can be torn down, making the property a single residence with a large courtyard and a study-cum-bath opening out to the street; a larger house with two bathrooms and a small business space, ultimately a single home.
