ON THE TERRACE
Despite its location, this house was quite closed to the sea, “partly for security, partly for comfort, not having to store the terrace furniture if it started to rain.
FOR THE WHOLE YEAR
In addition, the space had to be redefined because the life of the owners had changed: it was no longer a second home, but they always live here.
VIEWS AS PICTURES
Comprehensive reform should solve all these needs. Before the house was clad in exposed brick and now it sports a straight white silhouette. It is an almost entirely white house, practically new inside and out.
BREADTH OF SIGHTS
Missing the views of the Mediterranean was a sin. “For this reason, we opened all the holes we could,” continues the architect. And so it is! One wall in the living room is practically glass, and so is the stair railing.
ABOVE THE DINING ROOM, A TRANSPARENT STAIRCASE
The new way of living made the main floor, where the common kitchen, living room and dining room area, in the heart of the house, things happen here!
A NEUTRAL BASE, COLOR ACCENTS
To contrast with the white kitchen, we put gold handles, two lamps that look like sailor lanterns, and a carpet of hydraulic tiles under the kitchen table. We love the idea of that table, which is also an island. It looks like marble, but “it is actually covered with a large-format porcelain tile, the same as the dashboard.
NIGHT ON WHITE
Dividing the ceiling in different heights allows subtle aesthetic games, placing the lighting where you want it or hiding the curtain rail from view.
AN OUTSIDE DINING ROOM
The reform, in addition to opening to the sea, also included an outdoor dining room in which to gather with the whole family. With the same design as the rest of the terraces, white, with touches of color, prevails in the space.
In the bathroom, the relaxed character of the house has been enhanced with wallpaper with tropical motifs, a cantilevered washbasin cabinet, and a round mirror: three ideas that could not be more in trend and that achieve an atmosphere of calm and of sophistication at the same time.
