A Young Graphic Designer’s House

Updated: Jul 7, 2020

Designed by Antigoni Pagona in 2014

The request:

The purpose of this project was to arrange and chose the furniture needed to decorate a small studio located in Madrid in an old building (about 150 years old) to accommodate a young graphic designer. The architect Manuel Ocaña del Valle configured this very small residential area in the year 2000.


  • Drawings: (not in scale)

  • Photographic Material: Interior of the House

Ideas & Solutions:

  • The studio lacks of warmth (color) and is very bulk atypical state. So the place needs to get some bright colors.

  • I kept the staircase as it is and the cupboards under it.

  • The old bathroom and kitchen will be completely destroyed / removed to make a more functional and clear space.

New floor Plan:

Shopping references:

Bought for a young Graphic Designer, the small studio has to be transformed in a place to live young, with few design touches. I decided to use little furniture but carefully chosen: contemporary and visually light.
