A duplex full of light

The division of space into two heights and the attic condition of this Madrid housing They were attractive enough to charm their current owners, a couple without children. However, lto the original distribution of the duplex -with four bedrooms and three bathrooms- It was inappropriate for them, who wanted bright and spacious spaces. For this they had the help of 3y6 interior design studio that carried out the transformation of the house, along with the Integral Construction Reform company.

The demolition of partitions and the union of spaces were the keys to the work, after which they left two bedrooms, One per floor. Unifying coatings was another great move in the commitment to balance. Prima the absolute white in paint, carpentry and even blinds. An identical platform for the whole house puts the heat note necessary to compensate for such clarity and enriches the whole with the contrast of its dark finish. Another desire of the owners was to have a Very spacious living room with sitting area, dining room and office, since both work at home often.

The removal of walls was therefore mandatory both on the ground floor and on the first floor, where a very nice suite room was created. Bedroom, bathroom with shower and separate bathtub, and a large dressing room now occupy the space of the old bedrooms. The attractiveness of structural elements, such as attic walls of the rest area, intensified by covering part of them with a forest printed to the real size.

It is clear that the coatings, chosen with care, become protagonists in all the spaces of this house. An example of this is the small toilet on the ground floor which, after the renovation, reduced its size, making it possible to make an adjoining closet closet. The resulting few meters gained interest by coating it with a delicate butterfly print wallpaper; a circular mirror and a charming wall light complete this bathroom with the air of an old dressing table.
