This house seemed like a lost case before its renovation, Despite its good location in Lavapiés, one of the emerging neighborhoods of Madrid castizo and just two steps from the Reina Sofía Museum. However, its triangular configuration against a dividing wall without gaps, the lack of light and its inefficient distribution, typical of a 1970 floor, so that any potential buyer would run away.

That, not to mention pastel colored paint and tiled in pink tones that covered the walls. But, even with all those inconveniences, the house "promised". And so it is demonstrated after its radical transformation.

To do this, it was necessary to literally reverse the reorganization of the original spaces, in order to make its use more flexible and adapt it to family needs. In one of the vertices of the triangle that forms the floor of the house - a large interior greenhouse that allows the entry of light from the patio of the building to the central area - a dining room has been installed, in which much of the daily life. Here the kitchen has also been integrated, of minimalist design, designed by the architects and executed by Zellari, from Nuzzi. From this space you can access the bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as the living room, located at the opposite end. The circulation is very comfortable and the space is maximized.
