At less than 1000 sq. ft. total, this two-level Madrid loft apartment makes excellent use of available space and includes all the necessities for comfortable living. Architect Charlie Diaz has created a vibrant, luxurious living environment incorporating glass, wood, and metallic elements that feels inviting and homey, not at all austere or stark as seen in some modern architecture. The use of color and texture throughout enhances this downtown attic apartment’s open feeling, despite the relatively scant square footage. The kitchen and bathroom fixtures are modern but not intimidating, and the reliance on natural light from skylights and tall windows augments the brightness of the space. Via Freshome.
