This is a complete renovation of a house located in a 1956 building overlooking Retiro Park. The original distribution had a long corridor that crossed the entire house, generating a series of small rooms with proportions and forms that were not very functional.
The intervention frees up the floor plan, creating more open spaces and grouping complementary uses. Starting from a geometry that is not very orthogonal, we decided to rely on organic and curved shapes to generate connections in a subtle way, composing a central distributive core that gives access to all the rooms of the house, which now have more amplitude and luminosity. In the proposal, it was decided to respect the proportions and position of the main living room with a corner facade, free-standing circular section pillars and large openings that offer views of the Retiro Park.
The house had to maintain a warm and pleasant appearance, neutral but without being impersonal. In the project we wanted to give protagonism to the structure, maintaining the exposed concrete surface, integrating pillars and hanging beams in the design of cabinets and ceilings. This combination of materials gives a contemporary look, more industrial and eclectic, which merges the existing elements with the renovated ones and gives a very modern look with a neutral and homogeneous chromaticism.
