designer patricia bustos has conceived a ‘minimal fantasy’ in the heart of madrid as an all-pink color expanse that immerses guests and residents in a surreal and saturated space. the renovation of this vacation rental is both practically distributed and an ‘aesthetic madness’, expressing what the designer calls ‘a manifesto of the three Ss’ — surprise, singularity and sense. satin curtains, iridescent sheets and recycled, eco-friendly furniture make this apartment a vivid and vibrant place to stay when visiting the spanish capital.

in designing the apartment, patricia bustos was inspired by the work of ricardo bofill, particularly ‘la muralla roja’ (the red wall), where a seemingly infinite space creates the illusion of 2- and 3-dimensions. ‘minimal fantasy’ plays with interior space to dislocate the inhabitant and have them enter a kind of wonderland, where they can discover, little by little, what is hidden behind each door. thanks to the continuous floors, furniture and strategically placed arched steps, the space is multiplied.

the few furniture pieces chosen are almost all designed by the studio itself, which aimed to induce a sense of fantasy, and an aesthetic minimalism. the color palette comprises up to 12 shades of pink, forming an immersive color environment. ‘pink vindicates the fall of stereotypes,’ the studio says. ‘everything is possible, nothing is planned or established and that’s the beauty of it. that there are no rules…or rather that everyone has their own. that’s why it’s the color of a new generation that fights for its dreams and finds its way as it goes along, without maps or advice…just following the heart and intuition.’
