Main hall’s fireplace elevation blueprint
In this single-family house with a modern fireplace in Torrelodones (Madrid), the transformation of the living area is radical.
Thanks to the new layout, the replacement of the original floor with a new porcelain tile and the selection of current cutting furniture, we managed to design a more functional and comfortable space, as well as adding a plus with a wood-burning fireplace in the living room.
Single-family house with modern fireplace in Torrelodones
We present the new Single-family house project in Torrelodones. A proposal located just 29 kilometres from Madrid, between the Guadarrama mountain and the metropolitan area of the capital.
As a result of recent events and thanks to the consolidation of teleworking as a perfectly feasible work reality, the family that owns this house has a new vital need, so they decided to leave the bustling city centre to move to a town on the outskirts of the capital.
The original townhouse, built 30 years ago, features an eclectic style, rustic brushstrokes, and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room.
For this reason, the owners turned to the Molins Design studio in search of a more contemporary look, which we achieved through a significant partial refurbishment of important spaces such as the living room fireplace, the entrance hall, the internal staircase, the suite with integrated bathroom and the design of a leisure room in the basement.
"The transformation of the recessed fireplace was fundamental to eliminate the excess volume and thus apply a new design adjusted to a more linear volumetry".
We started by renovating the entrance hall and the front of the indoor wood burning fireplace. To do this, we worked with the masonry to eliminate the excess volumes and thus apply a new design adjusted to a more linear volumetry.
In this way we managed to make the space of this living room modern fireplace more friendly. The materials with their textures and colours flowed and blended in harmony. In addition, the made-to-measure furniture took centre stage to formally define the new identity. Large mirrors, backlit shelves, iron frames and a series of elements of order and restraint were placed. All of them, elements and accessories that rewrite the mise-en-scène.

The bookcase consisting of two base units with hinged doors and backlit shelves together with the varnished oak fireplace cladding, made to measure by our team of interior designers, provides functionality and style to this living room with a modern fireplace in Torrelodones.
The armchair and footrest in wood and black metal, inspired by one of the most iconic pieces of 20th century design, the Lounge Chair by Charles & Ray Eames (1956), fits perfectly with the bookcase and fireplace created by Molins Design.
To create a more familiar and social space in this living room with wood burning fireplace, we chose an upholstered corner sofa from the Italian firm Minotti, accompanied by the coffee table and side table with a matt black base and black glass tops, as very modern contrasting elements.
Both the curtains and the blinds and decorative cushions that dress the sofa were designed by Molins Design, in fabrics that multiply the feeling of comfort of the space.
The courtesy toilet designed by our team stands out for the use of terracotta-coloured wall tiles and the relief generated by mixing the different pieces.
By combining it with a bathroom cabinet with 1 suspended drawer in bamaco oak by Mapini, we managed to design a small space, but with an unequalled aesthetic beauty.
Suite elevation blueprint
On the top floor we find the master suite, which has a bedroom, a dressing room and the bathroom, probably the space that has undergone the most radical change.
The aesthetic readaptation of the master suite was quite a challenge, although we had the terrain levelled, thanks to the laying of the general parquet, which made the selection of pieces easier, chosen with special sensitivity.
At this point, we chose essential decorative elements such as the carpet, the headboard, the bedside tables and the decorative lamps. Essential elements for the decorative proposal to match the rest of the room.
Functionality and design in the bathroom
The design of a niche in plywood with a semi-lacquered finish in a dark colour, designed by our team and located next to the bathtub, is very useful as a storage and display element for the different pieces, both decorative and functional, that can be found in a bathroom.
The main bathroom, with its pearly appearance, undoubtedly takes us back to the world of jewellery. For its interior decoration, veined stone materials and matt rose gold chrome fittings were used.
All these accessories are reminiscent of fine jewellery, creating a visual framework with a minimalist appearance. Although it may seem a cold and distant space, the room contrasts with the warmth of the aged oak wood used in some essential elements.
Sophisticated luxury for the bathroom
In order to adapt to the needs and requirements of the owners, on this occasion we chose a wall-hung bathroom unit with four drawers in a matt tortora lacquered finish by Mapini, on which we placed a double basin in white, which contrasts with the taps in matt rose gold by the firm Bongio.
In addition to the bathtub, the master bathroom has a shower area, located next to the courtesy shower, as a more functional element.
