The couple still lived in the United States when they bought this house, which they fell in love with, due to its many possibilities, through an online real estate portal. A building with tradition, in an unbeatable area, with high ceilings and large windows. The company Basalto S.L. was in charge of the reform. in collaboration with the study of the architect César Díaz Roncero. After a comprehensive demolition, the result is worthy of admiration.

The monochromaticism of all the walls and the carpentry are the perfect background to highlight the presence of the furniture of the house, most of them brought from the trips that the couple has made, rescued from antique dealers and family memories. So that the final effect is not linear, in the living room, color notes have been introduced through textiles and contemporary-style paintings, which coexist in harmony with quartered windows and plaster moldings on the ceilings. The kitchen is the only room that maintains a minimal line, with which it has been possible to visually multiply its meters.

The absence of curtains in the windows enhances the flow of natural light and allows you to enjoy the views and the beauty of the vegetation that decorates the balconies. Only in the bedrooms have shutters in the form of a booklet in wood have been respected, because they give some privacy to these spaces. In the master bedroom multiple colors coexist, although again on a white base, which unifies all the decoration. In short, this project reflects how it is possible to raise the charm of the spaces with good planning and quality materials.
