Energy Efficient House Renovation, La Moraleja, Madrid by ABATON Arquitectura
The house was originally built in 1984 in La Moraleja, a residential neighbourhood in Northern Madrid being the Spanish version of Beverly Hills. The owners of the house needed to refresh the view of it aesthetically but at the same time needed a house efficient of energy. ABATON Arquitectura did both nicely. “[…] we altered the construction’s morphology (rooves) to improve the general energy saving and strengthened the magnificent views over the impressive garden; we re-organized the interior space in full and as a novelty, we improved the thermal efficiency by applying an external insulation” they explained.
The house is over 700 sq.m. having wide verandas as an extension of the main interior. As far as furniture is concerned ABATON used natural materials to back up the white colour of the walls. Wood, grey, ivory, pale green were the basic colours of the furniture creating the basis so that they could play afterwards with more extreme colours in items such as books, flowers, and paintings on the wall. The result is very interesting. Enjoy.
