Integral housing renovation in one of the most emblematic neighbourhoods of Madrid, close to the Retiro park. This project aimed to enhance its classic original style, while combining it with the most innovative elements, such as the design of the kitchen's island.

The main challenge of the project was to be able to renovate it with a modern and innovative touch, without losing its classic identity. This is achieved with the finishes of the furniture, flooring and wall detailing, combined with the preexisting elements of the house.


The intervention seeks to re-organize and adapt the interior distribution of night and day areas, as well as bathroom areas. The main concept tries to incorporate luminosity using glass partitions, austerity with the use of neutral tones and straight lines, at the same time there is a contrast between classic and modern with the moldings and brass detailing.
The taylor-made and built in furniture was designed around a same concept- the heart of the dwelling, the kitchen - which is the distributor of the whole project, and which sets a language that will be repeated throughout the project.



The kitchen becomes the heart of the dwelling, giving its main focus to the central island counter, custom-made in natural undulating stone and with brass detailing. These elements will be present in the rest of the details of the project.
All materials and colors were chosen following the company's identity and portfolio: white background to enhace the pureness that the future industry chases, the grey base as a reminiscence of the silver color identity of the architecture office and a teal and coral as details of the companies involved.
