Full conversion of an old flat in the heart of Barrio de Salamanca, Madrid. Before ÁBATON’s intervention it was an old house, with a traditional lay out (the kitchen and the staff rooms were located at the back) and so compartmentalized that natural light couldn’t make its way inside the flat. The aim of ÁBATON was to grant the flat a contemporary and clean appearance by unifying the spaces and allowing natural light inside. The public spaces such as the kitchen, dining room and living room are now located next to the entrance hall leaving the private rooms -bathrooms and bedrooms- at the back of the house where the kitchen was initially located. The house was fully demolished; Electric and water installations were renovated along with a new heating system by radiant floor, windows, flooring and separating walls. Every room has either street views or courtyard views. The master bedroom with bathroom en suite and walking closet has views to a silent courtyard. The walking closet is lined with natural teak wood and stands out the long corridor behind it so it visually shortens it. As for the other 2 bedrooms, both enjoy en suite bathrooms, enough closets and overlook a smaller yet bright courtyard. Regarding the living room, the load bearing walls have some square openings to allow natural light into the dining room -which lies between the kitchen and the living room- and the kitchen. ABATON has designed the bathrooms' vanity tops, bath tub and shower as well as the kitchen's corian countertop, all the kitchen and bedroom’s cupboards.
