MRG by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

The project designed by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos consists of the interior updating of an apartment in the center of the city of Valencia. We ordered the space looking for the continuity of the rooms, integrating the structural elements of the existing building within the divisions and the carpentry. Photography by Jesús Orrico.


The plan is understood as three longitudinal bands that allow through ventilation. An area where you can work with generous natural lighting is incorporated into the main area of the house. A system of sliding carpentry allows incorporating or dividing the kitchen space from the living room depending on the situation. A gym, a water area, a fireplace, a terrace facing south over the treetops of Gran Vía (the healthy biophilia) and various facilities give the apartment a level of comfort that sometimes you do not want to leave.
The materiality of the intervention is conceived as a kind of epidermis that naturally incorporates everything necessary, the installations, the storage, leaving it hidden and protected. It is made using natural materials that improve the conditions of the interior environment of the house, simplifying cleaning and maintenance. The vertical walls and the ceiling in a 9016 tone encourage light to penetrate throughout the house, the wood on the floor along with other elements such as the artificial lighting provides the warmth that helps transform this space into perhaps more than just a house.
