Joaquin Altamirano and Silvia Martín worked with Daniel Bergman Vázquez of Estudio Untercio to create an open-plan oasis in an apartment building in central Madrid.
The couple’s new 753-square-foot penthouse apartment suffered from a typical midcentury layout, with spaces for cooking, sleeping, and bathing strictly segregated into cell-like rooms linked by a dark hallway.
Martín and Altamirano insisted that their home have a holiday feel, one that gives off a Mediterranean ambience despite its location in a landlocked city.
