One of the major challenges in any renovation is how to address excessively elongated proportions, which almost always result in a very long corridor. That was the case with this apartment in Torrent, where we came up with various strategies to remove the corridor.
We designed the day area as a collection of open spaces, subtly separated from one another, with the kitchen left open and treated as another living space. The corridor then leads to the more private bedroom area.
Another strategy used was to introduce a break in the circulation after the kitchen, allowing the visual distance to the bedroom area to be reduced. In addition, a generous foyer area leading to the bedrooms was created to widen the end of the corridor, reducing its length as far as possible.
Once the renovation work was underway, we worked on all areas of the project which encompassed every last detail in terms of furniture and accessories.
For the flooring, we selected natural wood parquet and large porcelain tiles, which were applied from floor to ceiling in the master bathroom. As for the carpentry, we opted for a lacquer finish in the living and circulation areas; in the bedrooms, a laminate finish was chosen.
Audiovisual content and film are an important source of entertainment for the current owner of the apartment, so we installed a home cinema system featuring a screen, projector and sound system which are perfectly integrated, concealed and automated.
Art also plays a key role in this apartment in Torrent, and we decorated the walls with a number of paintings by renowned artists. From the earliest stages of the design process, we began to consider the paintings which would complement each room and they formed an integral part of the interior design project. Our attention to detail certainly makes Mas Millet Architects stand out.
