So appealing and full of life, this flirtatious living place is found in one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Madrid, La Latina. Located in a protected building of 1878, recently rehabilitated, it is a small treasure that has abundant light thanks to the five windows, all exterior, that surround the facade. Lina Guerrero and Daniel Afonso were in charge of the reform. His goal was to keep some of the original building elements, such as doors and windows, but update the set with impeccable decoration, based on the most attractive trends.

The result is a flat that respects the identity and history of the building and old Madrid, but adapted to modern needs and lifestyle. Hence the interior design is articulated with few pieces, so as not to saturate the 58 square meters that the house has, in two styles: design pieces and others recovered and restored. In the reform, Lina and Daniel wanted to make the space profitable and knocked down two of the partitions that delimited the kitchen and made it independent from the living room. Now, they share luminosity and both rooms are integrated into daily use.

In addition, they created a single bedroom suite with integrated bathroom and a closet front, made to measure. Next to the bedroom, at the bottom of the hallway as accessed on the right, a closet-type closet has been created, which hides the washing machine. Interior design maintains the same line in all environments to create a sense of unity and continuity, an effect in which the coatings participate, white on the walls and wooden herringbone floor, similar to the original. For all this, you want to settle in this floor where past and present coexist in harmony. Undoubtedly, both the reform, which takes advantage of the few meters of the original home, and the successful interior design deserve applause.
