The bulthaup Madrid O’Donnell showroom, located just a few steps away from the Parque del Retiro, has featured an excellent layout of its 170 m2 split-level venue ever since it first opened in 2013. To one side of the lofty central space, with its outstandingly tall ceiling, a mezzanine offers a secluded area for meeting with clients to discuss their projects.
A sound basis
When they considered how to approach their showroom renovation, the members of the bulthaup O’Donnell team were certain that it would be best to rely on a series of elements that had proven to work beautifully: their priority was to offer clients a new presentation of the products without altering the faultless existing layout. Now passers-by stop to gaze into the huge glass shop window at number 14 on Calle O’Donnell –and are lured in by a space that emanates serenity and elegance, inviting them to explore the bulthaup world.
From white to gray
Up on the mezzanine, an island and a line of base and wall units jointly configure a complete b1 kitchen with a white finish. Downstairs, the airy ground floor features a counterposition of the two ends of the bulthaup spectrum. On the left, an essential kitchen embodies the basic point of departure for the brand, combining a line of b3 units equipped with storage space and a water point in a light grey flint laminate finish, with a b2 workbench featuring preparation and cooking areas. On the right-hand wall of the same central space, another bulthaup kitchen showcases the premium end of the brand’s spectrum, with preparation, cooking, and storage housed in a floating b3 design with a striking dark grey aluminum finish, complemented at the back of the showroom by a second line of b3 storage and appliance units with a warm natural oak veneer.
A sweeping overview
At the center, across from the entrance, a bulthaup b2 kitchen tool cabinet acts as a link between the two poles of the broad range provided by the brand. Congratulations, bulthaup O’Donnell, for such a successful overview of the potential bulthaup has to offer.
