The rehabilitation of this downtown Madrid apartment worked miracles, both for the surprising sensation of spaciousness and for the empowerment of the natural light. The designer Nacho Olive, of Interior Design, initiated the change by demolishing all possible walls, to start from a diaphanous plant that he distributed again with the help of the company Betrasam. The owner, a young and single man, requested cleared spaces, masculine and with lots of natural light. In line with this request, the house today has a distribution based on the traditional planning of a single apartment, with a single bedroom, a bathroom and a very spacious living room.
As a resource to delimit the common spaces it surprises the original enclosure that makes the kitchen independent; It is a lightweight metal structure, with Sliding door Y large glass panels transparent, which acts as a barrier to prevent the exit of smoke and odors, but that maintains the visual unity. Another basic concept after the reform is the decorative continuity, which was achieved in part thanks to the maintenance of identical finishes throughout the structure; highlights the elegant oak floor chosen for the whole house, in contrast to the broken white of the walls - even the kitchen and bathroom tiles - in all spaces, except the bedroom, in a very attractive mink tone, ideal for a male room.
The decorative success of the bedroom is based on the appropriate selection of two unique colors for the whole environment: white as a finish for furniture and carpentry, and a suggestive mink tone on the walls and bedding. Also the only bathroom in the house enjoys a bold, careful and resounding interior design thanks to the mix of colors; in this case black and white accompanied by marked invoice details vintage.
Noble materials and sober finishes define the decorative rhythm of this Madrid apartment, which after a comprehensive reform looks much brighter and suited to the needs of its new owner.Sofa and coffee table

Independently of the kitchen without losing the unit, an original metal structure enclosure finished in black and with large transparent glass panels was made to measure. An original idea that also takes full advantage of natural light.White vintage air furniture
The choice of a kitchen with a simple and bright design was essential for its integration into the rest of the space. It is starred in white furniture and air appliances vintage.

The industrial design enclosure that delimits the kitchen enriches the entire space. As an office, for fast meals and breakfasts, it was decided to rescue an old desk and combine it with the emblematic Eames chairs, in black polycarbonate.

The main demand on the part of the owner was to get well decorated environments, but of unequivocal masculine style. The mestizaje of modern furniture with others of inheritance or rescued from antique markets, marks the right decorative rhythm of the house.Also the correct choice of a color palette, with white and mink tones as the base and marked details in
black, was key when betting on an elegant, sober and warm interior design.
