Cidon has completed the interior design and FF&E of the GFB18 apartments
During the last months of 2021, CIDON concluded the interior design project for 22 apartments, designing a large part of the furniture exclusively for this space, and finally the supply and assembly.
The newly built building is made up of 10 apartments with a terrace, 2 studios and 10 duplex apartments with a terrace. Located in the Chamartín-Ciudad Lineal district of Madrid on Calle Gustavo Fernández Balbuena 18 in a quiet residential area, but with all services nearby, it is very well connected to the city center and the airport.
The CIDON team involved, formed by Raquel Vallejo as project director and Ezequiel Ferreras as assembly director, at the express request of the client, Torrecañada S.L., set as key objectives an attractive and functional design aimed at a very specific audience, the uniqueness within of the city with respect to the existing offer, and the great quality of everything supplied. Of course, all this always within the established budget.
On this occasion – Raquel Vallejo tells us – we adapt to a given architecture of straight, clean and modern lines. These apartments are conceived as long-term rentals aimed, for example, at executives who work in Madrid during the week. As such, we were asked to provide the spaces with the necessary amenities so that they would have a very refined hotel look, and at the same time, the functionality and independence of an apartment. We have designed the vast majority of the furniture for these apartments, trying to maximize versatility and storage capacity.
The main goal set by the property has been to comply with the quality and the established dates. Other objectives that we faced were designing elegant and timeless furniture with a large storage capacity, since the apartments themselves do not have much, enhancing the terraces with resistant furniture and design pieces with top quality materials with Contract characteristics, regarding cleanliness, maintenance and FR characteristics. The challenge we have encountered has been dealing with the delays caused by architectural problems, deprogramming and rescheduling deliveries and assemblies, in which a good number of suppliers were involved.
In this project we can talk about 3 clear spaces:
1 – Dining room – The apartments are open concept in terms of common areas, so the kitchen is integrated into the living room. The kitchens chosen by the property are discreet and elegant, with integrated appliances. We complete them with red designer chairs that give the space a note of color and distinction. The rest of the furniture is elegant and practical. The sofa becomes a bed by removing the back cushions. The small armchairs/poufs and the double coffee tables can be moved and relocated depending on the needs. The floor lamp and the table lamp provide warm touches if we dispense with general lighting. In this case we have also provided the TVs and a decorative wall piece, handcrafted toraja, carved and polychrome, to complement the sofá.
2 – Bedroom – The main piece is the bed, for which we have designed a sofa that is made in the same finish as the bedside tables and the shelf under the TV. This canapé has two large capacity drawers on each side for storage. The low ceramic lamps with shades and a golden interior perfectly frame the tall headboard upholstered in a chevron-patterned imitation leather. The curtains with net curtains + the 100% opaque one and the functional pouf, have just completed the look of the rest area.
3 – Terrace – They are of various sizes, but in general they are quite spacious. They all have a relaxing area and a seating or dining area. All the furniture is quite linear and architectural, like the building. The base white color has been chosen to enhance the design and modernity of the building. At the same time, they are resistant and easy to maintain.
The summary of the result is 22 sophisticated and functional apartments, as well as fresh and timeless. The product is very attractive, and proof of this is the interest they are generating. The balance has been very positive and the client has been satisfied in general terms.
