The owners were looking for an independent usage of the secondary rooms, as well as the collective usage of a communal area connected to the main terrace. It was necessary to make some adjustments to the functional plan, converting a shady terrace on the second floor into a new bedroom and adding bathrooms on the second and third floors. Restoration work was performed throughout the building to repair the facades, roofs and terraces. The overall volume of the house was maintained with its mediterranean colour and aesthetics.
Many of the house’s original elements, such as the tiled flooring and wooden beams, were recovered to preserve the traditional character of the building. These original features interact with the more modern wooden, cement, steel and ceramic components. The design and introduction of custom-made furniture was of special importance to this project, contributing a functional value to each room.
