A 40 m² loft in Madrid

A 40 m² loft in Madrid

The owner of this Madrid loft, 40 m2I didn't have much free time to look for a house and, besides, I wasn't sure where to go to find what I wanted: a small but spacious house, with lots of natural light and high ceilings; Everything was quite complicated. The best solution was to put yourself in the hands of the Camden Town company; They were in charge of the whole process, from locating the house and managing the legal procedures, to the reform and decoration of it. The choice was a commercial premises at street level -spaces in which said company is specialized- and with a habitability license, and that met all the important requirements for the future owner. I enjoyed very high ceilings, quality that He took advantage to build a small loft where to install the bedroom. In addition, it had large windows, all equipped with acid crystals, to avoid the prying eyes of pedestrians. The works focused on demolishing all the partitions and creating a single open space. Only the bathroom remained independent, located just under the attic.

Then the kitchen was installed in an area that, having only two small windows, was the darkest of the premises. Therefore, in order to make the most of clarity, it was left open to the living room and the furniture was topped with a peninsula, which acts as a separating element without obstructing the passage of light. In any case, The objective of the reform was to achieve a single balanced and warm space. In it the coatings had a lot to do. The walls were painted in a very soft cream tone that helps to reflect the light; even one of the walls, which remained brick, was painted in the same color. Having such high ceilings and white walls, the environment ran the risk of being too cold; to alleviate this effect, we opted for a floating floor in natural beech, warm and very pleasant. As for the distribution, the area closest to the windows was chosen to locate the living area. Then the dining room, next to the bar that makes the kitchen independent.

In the decoration predominate wooden furniture in very clear finishes and in wenge, a combination of very warm and current tones. The loft was reserved for the bedroom, since, although open to the ground floor, it has some privacy and enough space for a good built-in closet.
