4 flats in Madrid



Today we received the comission to convert an open office plan of 316 sqm in Madrid into four flats. We are happy, it comes as a good start of the year, after some weeks of working with A+M architects on the furniture and equipement for Vil.la Joana. Our proposal is rather straightforward, and we have tried to simplify the distribution in order to make possible a building schedule of two months, the client is very strict with that deadline.

All the service spaces are gathered in a central longitudinal strip, so the sewage and MEP networks have a clear laying to the main drain pipes, clearing the façades for the living spaces.

Ahead of us lays the task of defining the materiality of the interiors, which shall be very minimalistic, with a parquet flooring as a base for the rest of the elements.

Our main challenge here are the deadlines, which are a must. We have three weeks to have the project ready for municipal license and those two months for the actual refurbishing.

Now the Barcelona, Mallorca and Madrid works are at full speed.

Altough regulations for private stairs allow for that in Spain, further consideratations relating safety of users where introduced by the blacksmith, who said, “hey, this ain’t japan”, referring to those floating japanese stairs with almost no railing at all. And it ain’t. Continue reading
