    Abstract:

    Complete renovation of a 1940 flat located in Madrid downtown. The first decision was to protect and restore a number of original elements of the house: the oak flooring, the exterior woodwork, the fireplace and the wooden structure. The intervention is summarized in three concepts. 1. Addition of the old clothesline into the living room. Keeping the big opening in the facade it creates a sheltered outside connected to the living room through large glazing. A small space designed for visual enjoyment that ends up gathering multiple uses according to time of year. 2. Location of the kitchen along the entrance hall and annexed to the library. The kitchen is annexed to the hall / library as a new object in that room, a single cabinet that folds up and fits.This creates an ambiguous room where you cook, read, eat, or play. 3. Master bedroom "en suite". The need to include a new bathroom suggested the idea of introducing a third object that fulfilled that function. The white paint of the walls and ceiling highlights the wooden floor plan. The colour elements correspond to the three "objects" introduced in the house. The living room includes an open view ceiling wooden structure that brings a loft look to the apartment.
