Comprehensive reform of an isolated single-family home located in the historic neighborhood.
The objective of the project is to increase the usable area, respecting all the restrictions imposed by Patrimonio, and to achieve a fluid, bright and versatile space. It has gone from 120 m2 to 240 m2 without altering the existing historical volume.
The original house had a ground floor, with disproportionately high ceilings, as well as a staircase on load-bearing walls that made interior redistribution impossible.
Two new floors have been created within the same volume, one of them below ground level, and the other below the roof, after adjusting the position in height of the ground floor and the first floor, all without intervening in the original protected elevation.
A new staircase has been designed that allows the physical and visual connection of the two halves of the house, allowing the common areas and the kitchen to be transformed into luminous, fluid and interconnected spaces. The slabs on the ground floor and basement have been slightly displaced to achieve a better connection between the different levels, as well as the entrance of the sun from the south to the basement and cross ventilation with the windows in the English patio open on the north façade.
