AN APARTMENT REFURBISHMENT NEAR THE SEA IN SITGES | BARCELONA
For this assignment, we had to work with an apartment from the 90s, a typical dark and closed single-story vacation apartment that called for a new life. A comprehensive remodeling was necessary to redefine and enhance the property and its various environments. The configuration of this old apartment did not respond to the contemporary requirements or the particular customs of his new family: small rooms, kitchen of minimal proportions, dark and poorly lit rooms.
After studying the structure in depth, we completely opened the common spaces area, inverting the position of the kitchen to integrate it into the living room as a whole, so that it could benefit from all the light that enters through the large windows of the terrace, transforming the entire set of dining room, living room and breakfast area in a large social space where all daily functions are unified.
In the most private area of the house, there are two bedrooms, one double and one for children, and a hygienic chamber composed of a shower and a toilet, with the sink installed in the distributor, framed within a set of wardrobe for towels and sheets, so that the use of the only existing bathroom unit in the house can be streamlined and allowing living and experiencing the spaces from a new functional perspective.
Complementing the project are custom shelving and cabinets, indirect and ambient lighting and STUA furniture chosen together with the property by the RARDO-Architects team of architects in Sitges.
