Location in the consolidated urban center of Madrid of a highly valuable building from the point of view of heritage and the renovation process the space has been subjected to are the key ingredients to understand this project’s sustainability. On the other hand, and from a technical point of view, this intervention is characterized by its utmost respect to the preexisting building and its reversibility, from which much potential has been recovered. Having documented low-entity finishings carried out in prior renovations, 1.5-foot solid brick walls emerged, along with carpentry, a structure of solid wood beams and small ceramic domes which have taken center stage.

Between 1928 and 1959, public entities like the Foundation of Military Houses and the Trade Union Works for the Home built social housing across all of Spain due to the changes in military personnel and lack of housing since the 1920. In 1949, the Cuatro Caminos Grouping was completed, a complex with 275 houses for military officials and 11 for non-commissioner Spanish Army officers, designed by architects Juan Gordillo Nieto and Miguel Niubó Munté.

This apartment is located at one of these buildings, and we therefore decided to preserve its essence and enhance its most valuable aspects, adapting it to present-day needs. The home’s excellent original layout has been preserved, divided into three areas: a common area (living room and dining room), humid areas (kitchen and bathroom) and rest areas (bedrooms). To improve individual comfort, we have reduced the number of bedrooms from five to three and integrated the kitchen with the dining and living room, in order to promote cross ventilation between north and south.
