URBAN SHELTER

OHLAB as Architects

This project started like a game, how to satisfy 15 desires or fantasies of a couple in a little penthouse. Some of these wishes were a bit uncommon for small urban apartments: simultaneous indoor/outdoor shower, breakfast with views, picnic in the park, golf at home, bathing on the countryside, cooking in the middle of the house, sunset cocktail bar, dining under the stars, exhibitionist theater in the living room, etc.


The project is defined by 3 curtains made out of artificial materials that, in combination with a collection of special details, provoke a series of unexpected moments within the limited space of the house: a 10-meter white leather curtain organizes the program hiding or unveiling the office, the kitchen and the wardrobe; a gold curtain covers the indoor/outdoor shower framing Madrid’s skyline; on the upper level, a grass curtain wraps the bedroom floor and the terrace converting the mezzanine to a small park overlooking the city.
