Its owners were lucky to inherit this apartment whose location, right in the center of Madrid, It was excellent. However, its distribution corresponded to outdated schemes that did not fit the needs of the owners: a young couple with two girls.

Silvia Chouciño and Francisco Ausin were in charge of the reform to adapt the space to a modern and diaphanous distribution, with spacious environments bathed in natural light. The idea was to create a large common area. For this, the walls of the old hall, the living room and the kitchen were demolished, and now, from the entrance door, this unique space is accessed. To make the current kitchen smaller, a sliding panel painted red was installed, which allows the dining room to be isolated from fumes and odors when necessary.

The main bedroom was made by joining two small rooms, so that it remained Enough space to create a work area. In order for the bedroom to have a built-in bathroom, the location of the access door of one of the existing ones was modified. In addition, the wall that separated the two bathrooms was replaced by a glazed panel that allows the passage of light into the girls' bathroom. For the coatings, a light color palette was started, animated with daring touches, such as red or strawberry. A perfect scenario for the current furniture that decorates the house, Many made by the owners.
