1930s Vintage Barcelona Apartment Gets a Colorful Refurbishment
January 31st, 2017 by msa

We love a good refurbishment, you probably already know that by now. What we love even more, however, is a very colorful refurbishment carried out in a stunning 1930s vintage apartment… in Barcelona!

Located in a 1930s building in the gothic city of Barcelona, this very vintage flat’s refurbishment was carried out in 2015 by the local studio Cirera + Espinet.

Before Cirera + Espinet put their hands to work, the flat had never been touched and everything, every wall, cable, pipe, was in its original condition! One of the original elements that the studio decided to keep was the brick vaulted ceiling.

Remodeled to suit the needs of a young professional family, the space and the rooms were opened up, thereby making them feel taller and brighter. Another particular thing about this new modern home is that ““we come in through the kitchen which is the heart of the flat as it’s completely open and is used as main entrance hall to the rest of the rooms,” explain the designers.

Home Makeover: Mid-Century Office Transformed Into a Modern Penthouse
January 11th, 2017 by msa

What was, during the 1960s a mid-century office in Antwerp came to be, nowadays, a modern penthouse. How did this happen? Well, this amazing home makeover was carried out by the Belgian architect Hans Verstuyft and the result was a two-story penthouse with a stunning view over the city.

The penthouse, which sits atop a steel- and glass-fronted office building, was designed by Verstuyft as both a home and office for himself, thus staying true to the building’s first use.

Being a two-story residence, the architect took upon himself the construction of an indoor/open-air courtyard, which makes the house feel more open and airy.

Verstuyft describes the lower floor as his home office. It is mostly taken up by a large office space, a meeting room and a workshop.

The living room, much like all gathering spaces, sits on the penthouse’s second floor and was thought to be a very minimalist and clean space. It features a small library, very inviting for a cozy evening with a nice book.

Verstuyft finished the minimal interior with traditional elements such as lime-washed walls, bronze anodized aluminum window frames and brass detailing that would create a “non-office building atmosphere”.

The architect chose sandstone in the kitchen for the countertop and shelving, and American walnut for the drawers.

“These are old materials used as new, and they match the 1966 age of the building,” Verstuyft said.

Both the kitchen and the library also feature open fireplaces in recesses in the walls.

When Verstuyft designed the penthouse he projected and then proceeded to install on the rooftop a 3.5-by-3.5-metre counterflow pool.

The head architect of the project said that “while you’re swimming, you have a view over the whole city, swimming in the direction of the cathedral. Next to it is a small solarium. Le Corbusier would have been jealous.

The façade of the building has been kept untouched, which ended up working amazingly with the renewed modern interior!

We all love an extreme home makeover, right? Fala Atelier has transformed a windowless garage in Lisbon into a bright, open-plan living space for a young couple with a parking spot for their car. Just amazing! The Porto architecture studio was asked to convert the 200-square-metre garage into a liveable space for the couple. Let’s take a look inside?

The Porto architecture studio was asked to convert the 200-square-metre garage into a liveable space for the couple. They just turned it into something cooler than ever!

“The project started with an unconventional request from an open-minded couple – within a very tight budget, to convert a windowless garage into a house,” said the architects.MAKEOVER: THIS GARAGE WAS TURNED INTO THE COOLNESS HOME makeover MAKEOVER: THIS GARAGE WAS TURNED INTO THE COOLNESS HOME garage house lisbon fala atelier interiors apartment lisbon  dezeen 2364 col 1

“The proposed intervention intended the clearest reading possible of the existing structure, emphasizing its strength,” they continued. “While the garage was careless and grey, the house is clean and white; its materiality is flat, its light is abstract.”MAKEOVER: THIS GARAGE WAS TURNED INTO THE COOLNESS HOME makeover MAKEOVER: THIS GARAGE WAS TURNED INTO THE COOLNESS HOME garage house lisbon fala atelier interiors apartment lisbon  dezeen 2364 col 2

The architects have created a largely open-plan living area and tucked two bathrooms behind a curving wall. All walls and the ceiling were painted white, while the floor was covered in polished concrete. The roof was opened up to include skylights, and additional decoration was kept to a minimum. How cool?MAKEOVER: THIS GARAGE WAS TURNED INTO THE COOLNESS HOME makeover MAKEOVER: THIS GARAGE WAS TURNED INTO THE COOLNESS HOME garage house lisbon fala atelier interiors apartment lisbon  dezeen hero

The Fala Atelier is led by Magalhães with Ana Luisa Soares and Ahmed Belkhodja. Other interiors by the studio include a Porto estate agents with marble furniture and partitions and a Lisbon apartment with a minimal aesthetic and sliding doors.
