Apartment in Madrid

Carlos Arroyo Architects as Architects

How to convert a traditional apartment with infinite hallways and tiny bedrooms into a spacious environment ... without sacrificing the privacy of the bedroom?

The answer is: playing with the ceilings! The entire ceiling of the apartment is visible from the entrance and the living room, providing a broad perspective turning the entire space into a generous loft.

Inside this space, warm wooden furniture boxes shelter the bedrooms. In the bedrooms, the proportions are comfortable and their whiteness enhances the brightness of the windows.

Before there was a tiny living room and narrow bedrooms, now there is a huge living room and the same bedroom space but more in proportion.

The kitchen is integrated with the dining room to allow for shared domestic life, however it is well equipped to avoid odor and noise intruding into the living room space.
