A floor of current style

A floor of current style

Although the owners of this 120 m2 house, located in the center of Madrid, they are linked to the world of decoration - she owns the La Wax store, Arte en Velas - they preferred to entrust the reform of their apartment to Manuel García Tages, director of A.T.P. Architects The work focused on reorganizing access to the kitchen and bedrooms, to achieve a more functional distribution, and to integrate the hall into the living room to achieve open spaces. García Tages was also in charge of decoration, with furniture and materials that reflected the latest trends. The simple line designs give every corner of the house an undeniable current air, with furniture that, as in the case of the living room table lamp - designed by Ingo Maurer - is a decorative reference. He chromatic chiaroscuro game, so fashionable, it can be seen in the living room, with wenge wooden tables and chairs and stone-colored upholstery, and also in the kitchen, where white modules and wenge finish alternated to achieve a more dynamic space.

The sobriety of lines and colors softened with supplements in sumptuous fabrics and very warm ranges, and with the choice of beech - a light wood that creates cozy environments - for the floor and the doors of passage. The study of the points of light was a key aspect in the planning of the decoration. Manuel García Tages differentiated two types of installation: the usual one in a house, with spotlights on the ceiling and floor or table lamps, and another flush, with recessed spotlights at ground level to achieve a relaxing environment. In the bathroom which is located inside the bedroom of the owners, suite type, highlights the double glazed countertop that incorporates a rice paper which lights with the recessed spotlight installed below. This same point of light, in turn, enhances a small zen garden which decorates the shower area, which rose a few centimeters above ground level to facilitate drainage.

A suggestive environment is achieved, too, in the other bathroom thanks to the work niche made in the wall, with recessed overhead lights that give the accessories and towels stored in it a decorative role. The work solutions, such as the shelves and the low furniture of the living room, made with plasterboard, solve part of the needs of the warehouse without disentangling in the decoration of an avant-garde house that, in addition, is eminently practical.
