This project consisted of the full renovation of a house located in a building from 1956 with views of Retiro Park.
The original layout had a long hallway that ran through the entire house, creating a series of small rooms with proportions and shapes that were not very functional.
The intervention frees up the floor plan, creating more open spaces and grouping complementary uses together. Starting from a non-orthogonal geometry, we decided to rely on organic and curved shapes to subtly generate connections, composing a central distribution core that gives access to all the rooms of the house, which now have greater spaciousness and luminosity. In the proposal, it was decided to respect the proportions and position of the main living room with a corner facade, the circular section pillars, and the wide openings that offer views of Retiro Park.
The house had to maintain a warm and pleasant appearance, neutral but not impersonal. In the intervention, we wanted to emphasize the structure, maintaining the exposed concrete surface and integrating pillars and suspended beams in the design of cabinets and ceilings. This combination of materials gives a contemporary, more industrial and eclectic appearance that blends existing elements with the renewed ones and confers a very modern aesthetic with a neutral and homogeneous color scheme.
