Conversion of Bingo into 12 Apartments. Cava Baja, Madrid

Designing the spaces from outside to inside

The transformation of a local destined to a bingo hall into tourist apartments is a challenge that goes beyond the constructive due to the typology change that implies in space. Inserted in a historic area of Madrid, the change of use affects not only the new inhabitants, but to the residential block in which are inserted into the immediate urban grid.

We propose spaces that allow a maximum versatility and flexibility of use, since the users are going to add a character of temporality that should be reflected in the design.
