Interior renovation of an existing detached house. The original house featured a rather impractical layout, with poorly connected spaces and complicated staircases in inappropriate places.

The renovation relocates the staircases leading between floors, establishing a clearer relationship between spaces and improving the proportions of the main rooms.

The living room was extended, increasing its double height, and the spatial relationship with the upper floor was improved. Large skylights with motorised windows were installed, enhancing the lighting in the area.

The original house is pronouncedly rustic in nature, with thick masonry walls and wooden beams, windows and lintels. These features influenced the new design, which aimed to find a balance by introducing clean, white walls and seamless open spaces; the interior carpentry was treated in an abstract manner from floor to ceiling, and slim-profile aluminium windows were fitted.

In the kitchen, a load-bearing masonry wall was removed and replaced with a steel frame, allowing the space to be extended and enhancing the dialogue with the garden outside.
