FA07 is the interior refurbishment of an apartment in Madrid, Spain, designed and conducted by local office Ensalada Works.

Founded in 2015 in Madrid, Ensalada is a group of architects who are constantly interested in new ways of approaching their environments and contexts.

According to the architects, the intervention can be defined as “three spaces that articulate amongst themselves”.

First of all, they removed the superfluous in search of the structural and functional essence. Corridors were eliminated, served and servant spaces no longer exist, but rather a continuous and uninterrupted flow of actions and activities.

Ensalada defined three spaces that complement themselves within their function but differ through their materiality: the Nave, the House and the Patio.

The Nave is a dynamic and flexible space of encounter. The House is a protected and warm space. Finally, the Patio is a space for dreaming and evoking that provides air and freshness.

Where a wide range of alternative activities could take place, and the constructive essence of the dwelling is revealed.

Here, the user can modify the perception of the threshold and therefore contrast or blur the difference within the more private or public atmospheres.

The Patio allows an alternative circulation, a playful experience.

In FA07, divisions and fragments are reduced to the minimum and partitions are understood as flexible planes. These elements allow the users to play with changes in opacity and transparency, generating a continuous and appropriable space.

The partitions are designed as such, contributing to flexibility in the design.
