The house is set in a classic building really next to Retiro Park. It had the usual arrangement in Salamanca District in Madrid. With a service entry and the kitchen in the back of the house and with all the rooms connected by a long corridor.

In the Salamanca house project we have moved the kitchen to the center of the house and we have eliminated most of the corridor linking the rooms and suppressing partition walls. The distinction between spaces has been made with furniture.

The main achievements have been to bring natural light into all the rooms. With the new arrangement night and day zones are clearly differenced. The night zone in the back and the day zone in the front with all the spaces linked.

We were looking to have both a sophisticated and classic character with a dialogue between classic frames of the original ceilings, but adding a contemporary flair.

This same idea of renewed classics has been used with the furniture. For example, with Jaime Hayon Fri armchairs in the enclosed balcony, Habibi tables by E15 in polished brass and silver and Tufty sofá by B&B Italia. All these reinforced with modern icons as Marcel Breuer`s Cesca chairs for the dinning room or Vic Magistretti’s Louisiana lounge chair in the living room. We decided to have just a few selected pieces.

Also, we have made an important restauration on the original elements : frames, doors, door handles, radiators and also a wood blind of the balcony.
