Didomestic Madrid Attic Apartment 1

Secret ceiling compartments activated by pulleys hide both functional and fun surprises in this Madrid attic apartment, including a dining table, swing, hammock and disco ball. Elii Architects complemented the rustic wooden beams of an existing attic space with a new plywood and polycarbonate platform to offer separation for different uses, while remaining highly adaptable.

The main component is a core that houses the stairs, separate from the rest of the main floor by transparent panels. These sliding panels can be arranged in different ways to close off a guest room, separate the kitchen from the rest of the space, or open the whole floor for a party.

Hidden in the plywood ceiling are a range of functions activated by handles on the wall. Turn one of these handles and pulleys will drop down various furniture items like the kitchen table or a hammock for lounging. Also concealed within the ceiling is a set of storage shelves for guests.
