Before and after: the radical change of a 56m2 apartment

In the old town of Toledo, a short walk from the Jewish quarter, we discover a flat of 56 square meters with a lot of history (and a happy ending). "It is located in a typical corrala built in 1870 where my great-grandparents lived, "Diego explains his current owner. Although now we see that its interior is spacious and open, it was not always like this:" It was a small and very compartmentalized apartment. It was divided into two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom, "he adds. Those responsible for giving him this new life were the members of the study.

The reform was total. All divisions were removed to create a single space shared by the living room and bedroom, separated from each other by a tempered glass wall, and the floor, electrical system and plumbing were renovated. Although the change has been total, the owner wanted to preserve and enhance the history of the property. During the works they discovered some wooden beams on the roof, They restored with sandblasting, and brick walls. Both original elements were exposed. Diego also recovered a mirror from his grandmother, who updated painting yellow and combined with current pieces of inspiration midcentury.
