This 250 m2 duplex apartment at the top of a 30-year-old block of flats in a residential part of Galicia, Spain is a second home for a Madrid-based family. The property has undergone a massive transformation, especially considering the age of the property and the fact that it had a problem with light. The architects, A-cero, have improved every aspect including space planning, light and design.
In the lower level of the Brazilian home featured for the past two days the art-loving owner has commissioned a huge gallery for his art collection.
Communication between the various levels of the residence is made by a central core that contains a lift which connects directly the first floor of the gallery to the residential floor and the mezzanine level of the gallery to the garage level.
Inside the spacious, bright art gallery...
