"Madrid Interiors" is a personal project of Asier Rua made in the last five years and designed by Folch Studio.
In those five years I have reunited 90 photographies of the more of 100 locations that I have photographed.
The connection between all of them is the color. I believe this type of spaces reflect better the character of the city of Madrid : funny, happy, social, espontaneous,...
The house of Gala San Miguel and hairdresser Whenderepente
With this point of view I looked for different type of spaces :
On one side , public spaces. Madrid representatives spaces such as Filmoteca española, Casino de Madrid designed by Jaime Hayón, bar Fabuloso, Florida Park or Museo del Romanticismo.
Bar Ojalá of Andrés Jaque and Filmoteca Española
On the other side private spaces or projects of famous creators who work with the idea of the color.
In this sense I have included the houses of Ouka Leele and Agatha Ruíz de la Prada, the stores of Guille García- Hoz and Lorenzo Castillo or the projects of architects such as Izaskun Chinchilla , Andrés Jaque, or Teresa Sapey. For all of them color has been a mark of identity on their proposals.
Lastly it was very important to select spaces of anonymous people. These have been the most complicated to get but they were fundamental.
The idea was to represent a polyhedral portrait of the city , not a book about interior design but a book about Interiors .

Madrid Interiors is the first book about this theme and it is made from a documental point of view.
I haven´t intervined in any of the places I have photographed. Most of the spaces don´t exist any more. This is something that has given a special value to the book , since we can´t visit this places any more, only throught these photographies.
Many others will dissapear and with the time the book will be a window to what Madrid was on the first years of the century XXI . I believe this aspect become these images in a legacy of great value.
