Located in Madrid, Spain, a union of two adjacent apartments into one was designed by architects Michael KreislerÃ‚Â with Angel Jaramillo. The owners wanted to increase their living space but wished to stay in the same location, in the heart of the city, so they purchasedÃ‚Â the apartment next door. TheÃ‚Â walls that separated the two apartments were torn down, the ceilings were thenÃ‚Â leveled to match the height of one another. TheÃ‚Â last step was to unify theÃ‚Â floor with the same pavement, then ipe hardwood flooring wasÃ‚Â installed throughout mostÃ‚Â of the living spaces. The walls were framed and restored back to the original architecture of the building. The doors were replaced with recessed sliding pocket doors in the main living environments to keep the rooms open andÃ‚Â spacious. The interior decor is a mix of items picked up from travels, with family heirlooms, alternating with antique furniture and some newer pieces intertwined.Ã‚Â The ending result was aÃ‚Â succession of warm and inviting spaces that encouragesÃ‚Â you to take refuge in them and enjoy a family life that writes its own history. The above picture is of the dining roomÃ‚Â featuring a floor to ceiling bookshelf.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Via
Behind the sofa hidden in the wood paneling there isÃ‚Â a camouflaged cupboard.
A successful combination of different design styles was applied to the dining room.
Two sitting areas were created in the big living room. Two original Dutch barrels as coffee tables.
TheÃ‚Â varnished wooden floors appear in every room (except the bedroom), even in the kitchen and bathroom.
The sloping roof with wooden beams adds a special charm to the bedroom. There isÃ‚Â a mix of new and old in the decor with the Le Corbusier chaise lounge.
The bathroom is retro inspired, the bath was installed in the center of the room,Ã‚Â with the addition of a glass ceiling-lamp and an old wooden cabinet.
What do you think of this beautiful restoration, did they do a good job? Do you like how they mixed antique furniture with brand new finds? I love how they took predominately white interior spaces and added bold punches of color throughout and the modern kitchen is a nice touch!
