A 1970s apartment becomes an aseptic dwelling with the potential to adapt and serve any of its possible occupants.
The Madrid practice of Eduardo Mediero tackled the project as a response to our society’s constant state of uncertainty, turning a rigid old 85 m² flat, placed in the city center, into a propositional system, more dynamic and open-ended. In an exercise of limited resources, every solution adopted is focused on maximizing spatial flexibility, avoiding predefined layouts and conventional typological divisions.
The scheme presents a grid of rooms placed en enfilade, connected to one another by large central openings that ensure visual continuity and dilute boundaries. A reduced range of materials is used, including epoxy resin for the floor, spray plaster in the ceiling, and mirror surfaces. In this way the apartment addresses only the variations of contemporary living, renouncing market-imposed threads of logic.
