A small apartment completely renovated to gain meters and brightness

Pablo Sarabia

Everything was torn down to make a new house. Nothing remains of what was this apartment located in Malasaña, one of the most emblematic neighborhoods of Madrid. Partitions were moved and thrown away, installations and coatings were renewed, ineffective carpentries were replaced by lacquered aluminum windows and balconies that maintain the obligatory aesthetics on the facade but offer optimum thermal and acoustic insulation ... As a sign of the past, just one of the beautiful wooden pillars that propped up the common surface that share living room, dining room and kitchen, and that marks the step to the latter.

MORE LIGHT, MORE FLUIDITY

The owner commissioned the integral reform of the house to the studio A & A Arquitectos,
formed by Antonia Salvá Llompart and Ana R. Méndez. The updated distribution has completely transformed the original space, since it was the classic property with a bland layout and tiny and dark rooms. The first performance was to eliminate walls to gain meters and clarity.

The spacious living room has two balconies facing the street. From the light that enters through them also benefits the dining room, arranged below, and the kitchen, open and integrated in this triple environment. Before it was located in an interior area of ​​the house and now occupies the very center of the home.

In addition, the new plant has allowed "stretch" the available surface thus creating a most complete bedroom, with dressing room and bathroom included.

SOILS AND WALLS

The coatings have an important weight in this metamorphosis. On the ground, the
Oak multilayer platform with large format slats unifies the public and private areas and visually expands the spaces.

CERAMICS VINTAGE

The pavement of the kitchen, however, breaks this continuity.

CUSTOM DECORATION

Once the works were finished, the interior design work was entrusted to HS Decor, an agency of home staging, That on a tight budget did wonders. This company owes the modern and fluid style of the house. The whole match was brought to light by reinforcing it with simple, small-sized furniture that does not hinder its passage. The use of bright colors and large plants fill with good vibes to the last corner of the house. As for textiles, they are key in the aesthetics of the floor: their loving textures cover, caress, wrap ... They are salt and decorative pepper.
