J29 arises with the aim of refresh a house from the 70s located in the Embajadores neighborhood. A very compartmentalized structure would be transformed into a fluid space.The soul of the project is an integrated kitchen with an industrial island. The beginning: a conversation and the challenge of combining an en-suite master room with a large kitchen-living room area on a very tight budget as the starting point of this story.
Inspired by the atmosphere of Almodóvar films like Tie me up! or Pain and Glory; for its use of acid, primary and saturated colours. They provide meanings from the collective imagination to the home.
We also find references to Andalusian airs in the choice of these colors; the searched image dialogue with its inhabitants. The kitchen is visually linked to the terrace and the mirrored doors behind it increase its spatiality.
The island of more than two meters, integrates through a metallic structure designed ad hoc the bell and the only visual representative of the structure in the house: a wrought iron pillar under a hidden beam of seven meters of light.
Diffuse lighting takes center stage emphasizing the horizontal lines of the kitchen. They also make levitate the volume of the island on the chosen porcelain floor. Throughout the carpentry design, it has been very important to accentuate this set of lines, marked with wood on the horizontal plane, and with green on the vertical plane.
At the hall a translucent glass panel provides light from the study. Similarly, a first vertical alignment in the cabinets highlighted in green generates unity throughout the house.
The use of COLOR is essential.
This is linked to the development of processes and houses actions. The yellow chosen in the bathrooms – as in other studio projects – leads us to wake up, to the energy of the first thing in the morning. It is a bright color that symbolizes joy, merriment.
A ceramic tile with dark joints adds character and identity to wet spaces. White vs. Black and Yellow are the chosen colors. A latticework with shelves for pots gives us intimacy in the main bathroom area.
The placement of spaces for vegetation in specific spots of the house is important in the different rooms.
The challenge. The creation of a central orthogal living room space with a kitchen + island as the protagonists. The accesses from this principal space to the master bedroom and the office. The kitchen on its front side acts as a green staple, leaving the doors on its sides hidden.
Memories of Matta-Clark.
// The furniture is a 70’s look. With chairs from Amaltea Antiques and opal lamps.
// green, I love you, green.
// the yellow in the bathrooms. the awakening .
