A few meters from the Madrid's Gran Vía you can still find jewelry from the past as spectacular as this stately floor of the early twentieth century. A complex and ambitious project that sought to update the spaces without losing an iota of its exquisite original flavor. A challenge that was responsible for carrying out the Ateliers HR study, specialized in renovate old houses with spectacular results, and that opts for the duality between the classic spirit and the design. Soils recovered, original architectural elements and a truly exquisite restored carpentry were the basis for an unbeatable result.
An elongated floor layout with the corridor as a conductive thread results in a succession of environments in the same decorative line; they are always independent spaces, but endowed with studied resources of integration based on arches, wide double leaf doors or glass enclosures that guarantee an absolutely voluntary visual union. Also, natural light, so free and intense, intervenes in interior design as another element of the equation. Not in vain the numerous and flirtatious balconies that equip each room were a reason for the acquisition of the house.
Highlights the exquisite care for details, both architectural and decorative, and the careful choice of coatings always in style vintage in perfect harmony with the original finishes of the house. The contrast, achieved by combining them with pieces of current design, breaks the idea of classicism to use and shows results that never leave indifferent.Advertising - Keep reading under Gray sofa with chaise longue
