Refined vintage interiors by Abaton Arquitectura and Batavia.

After more than ten years teaming up with interior designers BataviaÁbaton 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.

The unique aesthetics pays attention even to the smallest details: frameless full-height white doors, custom-made wardrobes with sliding doors and radiant heated floors, among others.

In the main bedroom, the headboard is surrounded with glazed panels, while a sliding panel hides the bathroom.

The rooms located on the upper floors have terraces connecting to the exterior of the house. That is the case of the children’s area on the second floor that counts on a well-protected terrace.

All floors are paved with honed limestone, also used to cover the bathroom walls and the showers. Only in the outside granulate limestone was used.

The swimming-pool was built in a separate area respecting the uneveness of the land. The garden combines grass with pine barks.
