Adom-Studio, a multi-disciplinary Architecture and Desing Office, in collaboration with Valcucine Madrid | Estudio Kroma, designed a minimalist and modern project of a open plan kitchen with island in Madrid. The house was originally subdivided and dark. The architect main objective, for the restoration project Alfonso XII was instead to provide natural light to the house, creating open spaces facing the landscape.
The interior layout revolves around a central living area, with sleeping quarters positioned at either end. The materials utilized in the house include oak, steel, and concrete, which create a striking contrast against the intricately designed custom carpentry specific to the project. To maximize the open space within the house, a perimeter structure is constructed, leaving two distinct elements that harmoniously balance each other: the kitchen island and the fireplace.
The open plan kitchen with island becomes here the focus point of the project. The choice of the architects was to integrate the kitchen into the living space and create an open-plan living environment with an open kitchen. «In this project – Valcucine explains – the focus is on our Artematica kitchen model, with refined and elegant glossy white glass finish. A colour that expresses extreme elegance and cleanliness, just as it is intended to do in the rest of the appartment. Everything is then enriched by the Textile Vitrum finish that is chosen by the designers for the special element Air Logica. Without compromising the elegance, kitchen technology and functionality stand out here in our Air Logica system: when shut the large door conceals the equipped back panel, which is accessorised to meet the user’s requirements with sections dedicated to organising the kitchen».
