estudio AMASL renovates apartment in madrid and breaks with outdated ideas of housing

the purpose of estudio AMASL’s ‘PEX 114’ in madrid is to adapt the existing residential space to reflect the updated needs of the owner. these new requirements break with the previous layout and outdated ideas of housing, where segregated spaces for specific uses, low quality light and a lack of comfort were the norm.


estudio AMASL’s ‘PEX 114’ in madrid

 

 

there are a number of key elements shaping spanish based estudio AMASL‘s design. for instance, combining the perception of continuous space using microcement on the floor, a warm interior with customized furniture that complement the surroundings and doors embedded in cozy niches allowing the space to flow between rooms. all of these create a contemporary and vibrant living space in a city that has not always been so benevolent to its citizens.

transformations and renovations of existing buildings become the unavoidable horizon
