The main target of this project was creating a space with style and materials that transcend over the years, creating wide open spaces to enjoy the privileged views from each area of the apartment. A specific requirement of the client was to optimize the whole apartment in order to generate areas that are always useful and an architectural program allowing every corner to be lived.

To achieve the greatest possible extent, we took advantage of the interior height, where the planning and crossing of the facilities played a very important role, reducing the trajectories and leaving the structural beams apparent, giving rhythm to the ceiling and resulting in a source of light as well as a decorative element.

A very sober materials palette with only three coatings: marble, wood and concrete were used. The relationship between the textures allowed to give the sought balance and elegance thus maintaining a timeless style.

Serrano Monjaraz Architects team always handles spaces through the visualization of the volumes, being the base for the design of this apartment bodies with different materials separating each area. In the public area two important volumes receive: a concrete block containing the kitchen and services and a marble block that works as a sculptural element in the apartment´s grand double height.

The staircase plays a very important role in this project, it is the element that stands out and enhances the magnificent double height, a simple element whose beauty is based on two rolled metal rails that rest on a glass bridge framing in both ways the granite steps. There is another element in this area, a large block of wood containing the public spaces and providing privacy to the family room.
