Patricia Bustos Studio has designed a striking bight-pink interior for the Minimal Fantasy apartment in the heart of Madrid, Spain. The studio has designed the renovation of this 55sqm apartment with the intention of taking us out of the daily routine of our lives and entering for a moment into a surreal and extravagant world. “Except for the distribution, which had to be practical, the rest of the project has been an aesthetic madness to take the visitor out of their comfort zone and make them dream,” explained the studio.
Satin curtains, iridescent sheets and recycled, eco-friendly furniture make this apartment the coolest place to stay when visiting Madrid. Inspired by the works of Red Wall Bofill, the architect creates a mysterious and infinite space with the perfect transformation between 2D and 3D, and with several elements that play with the optical illusion. The intention of the study was to play with space, to dislocate the inhabitant and that this will enter a kind of Wonderland, where you discover little by little what is hidden behind each door and where, thanks to the continuous floors, furniture work and arched steps (strategically located), space is multiplied.
“We wanted to do something eye-catching and not go unnoticed, since in Madrid the offer of vacation rentals is enormous and you have to differentiate yourself if you want to have a recurrence in the rentals,” expalins the studio.
The few pieces chosen are almost all designed by the studio itself, which wanted the space to breathe fantasy but also a refined and architectural aesthetic minimalism.
The color palette is up to 12 shades of pink makes the space that serene and surreal ‘Pink is punk’. “Pink is already the colour of a whole generation… the generation of the brave, those who are not afraid of change,” the studio concludes. “Pink vindicates the fall of stereotypes – everything is possible, nothing is planned or established and that’s the beauty of it. There are no rules, or rather that everyone has their own.”
