This duplex is the dream refuge

The structure prior to the reform of this duplex already wasted an incredible attraction, suitable for being adapted almost to the measure, as it happened later. Equipped with a privileged location, in the Attic of a central building, this Madrid apartment was organized and decorated to accommodate a couple in a bright, sophisticated and refreshing environment. The architect of such an excellent result was the architect Charlie Diaz, who opted for a loft aesthetic.

With the full support of the owners, the architect opened openings, roof windows and knocked down all the partitions so that the light input out total. The almost absolute mastery of the white color in the walls and in everything that overlaps them, provokes the reflection of light and multiplies it, a valuable resource considering the absence of traditional windows. This process enabled the installation of a unique stained oak flooring in wenge, as well as the use of novel materials, such as polished concrete, black in the shower and white on the kitchen wall. Regarding the distribution, the 90 m2 available were divided into two heights with living room, dining room, kitchen and toilet on the ground floor.

The upper area is different and peculiar, with a charm marked in part by the access to a charming terrace, by the presence of the staircase and the work shower next to the bed or by the large roof window that opened in the seating area Here the presence of a lovely corner chill out It was a success; Equipped with a mat, numerous cushions and Moroccan details becomes a direct thread with the world of dreams.
