A house with private Eden

A house with private Eden

The constant search for physical and mental well-being is perceived in every corner of this Madrid house. And it could not be otherwise, since its owners are a chiropractor and a yoga teacher; Therefore, upon discovering this 60's built chalet They decided to acquire it. They fell in love with their lush wild garden and the possibilities of communicating it visually with the interior of the house.

The connection between spaces was achieved through elimination of superfluous partitions, which encouraged the breadth of the main environments. Inside we opted for a warm decoration, with absence of sophistication, but with interesting pieces of wood and details in white lacquer and steel, which provide a correct contrast. The comfortable oak flooring and the painting with a predominance of gray balance the whole. The large windows dressed in screen blinds in order to sift the light without losing sight. Thanks to this resource, interior and exterior coexist for much of the year.

This suggestive connection was the main achievement of the Landscaper Carolina Wiggins who carried out a project inspired by wild environments. His successful project culminated with comfortable living areas and a nice dining room in the garden, all communicated directly with the interior, and designed to enjoy and maintain in perfect condition without too much complication. It is definitely a home created and decorated with a single goal: to feel really good when you get home.

Plane and ideas

- Being a house of the 60s, the height of the roofs is about 2.50 m. Traditional lighting was not enough, so that adjustable halogens and various points of support light were installed.
- The integration and expansion of environments was the main objective of the works; in some areas they were completely demolished while in others, doorless openings were respected or slides were installed for greater versatility.
- Coatings play a fundamental role; The original floor was covered with a very warm water varnished platform. The walls and ceilings were painted in very light tones as a resource to gain natural light.
