Spanish decorator Isabel Lopez-Quesada transforms a wax factory in Madrid
into a her humble abode. With a mix of modern and early french interiors the
space now fits into the tree-shaded, clean-lined houses, neighborhood that was
established in the early 1930's.
Even though the 5900 sq. foot space was a full functioning factory
when she located it, she saw the potential in the L shaped structure to be
the new residence for herself, her husband and three children.
The courtyard was a perfect backyard and relaxation
space, while the living quarters, separate from the main structure,
for the workers, made a perfect home-based office and studio space
for the working mother.
