Spanish studio Lucas y Hernández-Gil has refurbished a 190 smq apartment set inside a 19th-century building in Madrid, that features a series of balconies that overlook the close Retiro Park.
Conceived for a couple and their four young children, the aim of the renovation project was to take advantage of these park views, as well as integrate a new kitchen area into the main social space.
Using a similar approach to their previous Madrid apartment renovation, the design team has removed compartmentalising walls to create a light-filled open space. The day area, living room, dinning room and study, now overlook the Retiro Park while the bedrooms the inner courtyard. The kitchen in the heart of the house assembles both parts. “Materials, oak and marble connect with the originals joining past and present,” said the studio.
