La Moraleja ÁBATON Arquitectura

All-round refurbishment. 750 sq mt (8,073 sq ft) detached house (Madrid).
Its construction dates from 1984, with a closed and dark distribution but very well built so the final project eliminated actions that were thought necessary in the early stages of the project.
Basically, we altered the construction’s morphology (rooves) to improve the general energy saving and strengthened the magnificent views over the impressive garden; we re-organized the interior space in full and as a novelty, we improved the thermal efficiency by applying an external insulation. Additionally, we designed the new landscape, re-organizing the existing species and planting new ones according to the new uses of the house.
The house is divided in 3 levels. Next to the garden there is an under covered outdoor area with direct access to the swimming pool. Inside, there are a gym, a living room and 2 additional bedrooms. From the garden there is access to the main floor through 2 stairways: one goes to the kitchen and the other gains access to the living room. The main floor accommodates the office, living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom/bathroom and guests bathroom.
The upper floor is intended to the clients’ family: 5 bedrooms with bathroom en suite and a living room also used as a lobby.
