The ceramic loft in Madrid

To start with, what is loft?

Loft is an architectural style of the XX-XXI century. When the top part of industrial buildings (factories, warehouses) are converted for houses, workshops or offices, the last are called loft.


The project «The ceramic loft in Madrid» was put into life by the Spanish architect Héctor Ruiz-Velázquez, known for his unusual works. The attic, which Héctor Ruiz-Velázquez has converted into a ceramic loft is in a very old building, which was built in the early 20th century. Why is this project so interesting? – You may ask. Mainly due to the fact that the main decoration material used here was the ceramics. It is not for nothing that it is called «ceramic house» or «ceramic loft» in Madrid.

Although ceramic loft can’t be categorized as «luxury loft Madrid». Let’s look at it more detailed.

Despite the small area of the attic, the architect managed to break it up to the levels and make it visually quite spacious very well. This effect was achieved primarily due to the chosen color scheme, namely a white colour, which creates a single light and airy space. Another interesting decision was made when Héctor refused of using the partitions themselves.

It is worth noting that «Ceramic loft in Madrid» is furnished with a minimum set of furniture and equipment. In order to dilute the light space, the designer used wooden furniture in warm colors. There is a very small kitchen area and a very small and narrow toilet. The sleeping area is located on the second level. A particular attention should be paid to a large number of exclusive design details that harmoniously fit into the whole design.

The niches for things are interestingly arranged, but at the same time, it’s a minus, as they are fully open and serve not only as a place for things, but also as a dust collector.


To speak for ourselves, we would like to note that the ceramic house in Madrid (ceramic loft) is similar to the office of a design company. Perhaps it would be worth making it a little bit easier and add more warm tones that could have evinced the home comfort. There is also a lack of some furniture, for example, at the time of the photoshoot, there was a lack of sofa 😉 And without a full-fledged closet system emptiness is felt.

Undoubtedly, the architect Héctor Ruiz-Velázquez has implemented an interesting project; light ceramics makes the apartment nice and roomy, but a bit cold and hard. Ceramic house in Madrid confirms once again that with properly implemented interior design, you can achieve excellent results even having a small area. However, this very small area and the absence of an actual large space for furniture and equipment, does not allow the object being included into the category «luxury loft Madrid»
