A house open to the porch

A house open to the porch

The owners of this house with garden, located in a town near Barcelona, commissioned its reform to the study of architect Josep Cortina, with the aim of creating spaces wider and diaphanous, full of natural light, that would favor family activities. Now, the lower floor, which integrates the common areas, has a large living room with windows and a large kitchen, perfect as a meeting place; and the superior one has the bedrooms, where the clean and balanced decoration enhances the luminosity. Of the reform deserve special attention the day environments. Its visual breadth is achieved with a maximum that the architect applies to all his projects: warmth and quality. They are environments with an aesthetic that pursues luxury, lacking ostentation. In the living room, with few pieces but well chosen, and numerous windows, the sofa is oriented towards the dining room, which is framed by a large arch that enhances it. But it is the kitchen, independent, that captures all the attention, for its exquisite design, luminosity and spaciousness. The kitchen, rectangular and with an outward-facing distribution, seems much wider, because it gains visual depth through the glazed doors which, once opened, integrate it into the porch and garden. To highlight here, the cabinets and the island with plate and sink, designed by Josep Cortina, as well as the maxi wooden headboard of the master bedroom; all of them furniture that, with their pure lines and textures, raise the decorative level of the house.

KEYS OF THE REFORM
- The kitchen merges with the outside through a great vain on the facade, with sliding doors of generous dimensions, which communicates with the porch, transformed into a living room fresh air, with living and dining area.
- The porch is projected as an extension of the kitchen, to which it visually expands. To make it more cozy and use it more months a year, and not only in summer, it is protected with a pergola with glazed roof, which incorporates vertical blinds, roller, practical to avoid air currents or the sunset sun.
- The kitchen furniture and the multifunction headboard of the bedroom are the most visible face of a top interior design project, which blends good design, quality and functionality.
