The architects Cristina Domínguez Lucas and Fernando Hernández-Gil established their own design studio named LUCAS Y HERNÁNDEZ - GIL in 2007.
Presented below is House MD, an extension and refurbishment project on a single-family home from the 1980s in the neighborhood of Chamartin in Madrid. The original fabric of the former building is the unusual and special brick.
The architects of LUCAS Y HERNÁNDEZ - GIL took care of a proper interference into the structure as to emphasize its value and contrast it with modern materials.„We took this key aspect to establish the dialog between the original and the extended,” they comment. The new design connects the different spaces of the house through varied glass walls equipped with convenient sliding doors. Yet in the central of the space the architect located staircase connecting all the levels and attracting attention with its wooden balustrade.
