    Enter a refurbished apartment in Leon, Spain by local studio OOAA Arquitectura, where every moment is wrapped in warmth.

    Madrid-based architecture studio OOAA Arquitectura know what it is to design confidentiality calm spaces, grounded by their appreciation for simple, timeless architecture, natural materials and iconic pieces. As the studio’s director Iker Ochotorena describes, their projects are where life takes shape naturally. It’s this sentiment that led the studio to renovate an apartment in Leon, Spain for a family of five. While the climate in Northern Spain leans on the cooler side, OOAA Arquitectura have created a home that feels exactly the opposite.

    OOAA Arquitectura configured the home with a shared ‘social’ space separate from the master bedroom and from the children’s bedrooms. Close to the children’s bedrooms you’ll also find a playroom, connected to the formal living and dining zone with a large timber pivoting door. The OOAA Arquitectura design team deliberately avoided corridors in the home and prioritised wood as the central material, in a bid to offset the cold climate.

    The white oak flooring is mirrored in the custom made furniture, within the library cabinetry, kitchen, wine room and the enviable master suite’s walk in wardrobe. The charcoal-coloured pine wooden doors offer contrast to the light timber. 

    The OOAA Arquitectura team enhanced the oak joinery and flooring with sand, white and black accents to create a sober and elegant atmosphere. These accents are revealed through the bespoke black lacquered Pierre Jeanneret chairs, Serge Mouille wall lamp, Maison Barbier 1970s travertine table lamps and custom armchairs in the living space. Tactile elements such as the microcement coffee tables and linen soft furnishings further complement the scheme, alongside hints of teal and seagrass green. 

    Alcázar de Toledo completes another layer to OOAA Arquitectura’s revered portfolio, denoting their hand at equally warm and minimalist spaces.
