Casa Matilde Diaz

CMYK Arquitectos as Architects

The project is commissioned by a married couple whose children had been emancipated but who needed a more practical and extensive kitchen.


The state with which the conception of the project began was the typical kitchen of the 80s, of narrow and elongated form with the laundry in the background. The furniture took up a lot of space on both sides making it difficult for several people to use it at the same time. Besides, the storage had no preconceived logic.

We proposed a project by enlarging the kitchen to the rear, which overlooks a room, up to the distance that the pillars allowed us, taking advantage to place most of the storage in that room. This allowed to keep everything in the same plane gaining in total more than 60 cm to the passage area, making it in this way comfortable for cooking in family. An essential detail was to incorporate something traditional of Granada and that’s why this mosaic was made on the counter.

Another important premise was to involve the laundry in the space but maintaining its differentiation, as well as improving the thermal comfort of the room, which with its orientation to the north was very cold in winter. To solve it, the laundry room was isolated both in the ceiling and in the walls to be able to unite it thus finally with the kitchen.
