Complete renovation of a typical antique house in Madrid, highly compartmentalized and dark, as a result of a several refurbishments. The main purpose was to rearrange the space to give importance to the common areas and to link them with the existing balcony. The original layout was changed by temporarily closing the service door and placing the guests’ area (bedroom and bathroom) there. The public spaces -kitchen and living room- are arranged around the balcony.
In order to enjoy the outside for long periods of time and to soften the noise of the city, a fountain and an area for outdoor cultivation were built on the terrace.
