Interior designer Michelle Vasconcelos was asked to transform an outdated apartmen so that it could be upgraded and rented out at a better price. The penthouse is located in Salamanca, a district of Madrid, near the Retiro Park so it has great views!
There are no unnecessary or noisy trends that would mislead the essence of the project.
The interior designer decided to change the original layout of the rooms. Walls were broken down and new connections opened up within the interior, bringing spaciousness, modernity and flexibility to the small 45 sqm apartment. The spatial dynamics of the building were brought back thanks to the parameters of flexibility, fluidity and hospitality. In addition, there are no unnecessary or noisy trends that would mislead the essence of the project. The studio prefers to impress with the absence of noise. Therefore, they chose a neutral colour palette that can suit the personality of any potential tenant.
The heart of the penthouse is the open kitchen and living room. Therefore, there is a lot of natural light and it is distinguished from other rooms by the terracotta colour. This refers to the roofs of Madrid, which you can see from the penthouse. The floor is a large porcelain tile that adds modernity and light to the whole house. In the bedroom, a 'Punta Hungary' parquet was chosen, which should encourage the residents to feel the warmth and friendliness of the room barefoot. Throughout the house there are different types of lighting, both direct and indirect. Thus, each room has a different atmosphere at night. Various details were added in wood, such as the heating covers and the furniture, which are intended to emphasise the warm, welcoming interior. The penthouse is a design with a fresh design language without being cold. A microcement floor was used for the terrace, enhancing the exceptional view. Thanks to the renovation by Michelle Vasconcelos studio, the value of the apartment was increased and it was rented out again! Photography by Montse Garriga Grau
