Refined vintage interiors by Abaton Arquitectura and Batavia.
After more than ten years teaming up with interior designers Batavia, Ábaton Architects now present unique homes like this: the result of a custom-made architecture and a wide selection of refined vintage design pieces.
Like in many other cases, the orography was crucial in the building of this 312m2 home. Due to the shape of the plot located at Madrid’s suburbs, building a spacious house was quite a challenge for the studio.
The building structure consists of two rectangles united by a long narrow corridor. The architects took advantage of the unevenness of the land to position the three floors in different levels, maximizing the privacy of the rooms, only visible from the garden.
An exterior semidark area gives access to the door entrance located in the center of the building, where a set of stairs vertically separate all floors. This area gives access to different parts of the house, serving as a distribution hall. In order to enhance the visual effect of the different levels, the architects chose to create wide open spaces visually connected among them.
The architects’ choice was to perfectly combine the interiors and the exterior of the house. In that sense, the living room and the kitchen take up the house’s bright central area offering a fantastic view of the outside that contrasts with the semidark narrow distribution hall.
The duplex lounge, the dining room, the kitchen and the main bedroom are all located on the ground floor and provide direct access to the garden. Furthermore, one of the windows is framed by a concrete pillar widening the view of the garden.
The interior design project led by Batavia counted on functional design pieces that, combined with some antiques, vintage furniture and contemporaneous masterpieces, create a warm well-balanced refined atmosphere.
Paving in honed limestone. Concrete walls, brick facade enclosures and mortar covering. Flat covers with gravel finish. White MDF woodwork. Steel entrance door. Radiant heated floors. Lacquered aluminum woodwork.
