Romantic vacation villa in Spain with colorful character, custom-made furnishing, chic twists and beautiful mosaics. Located on a fantastic place on the historic Camí de Ronda, next to the Mediterranean seacoast and connecting directly whit the sea through privet pier the house has a strong organic connection with its surrounding.
The architects from Nook Architects had done an extensive reconstruction work while preserving the general volume and restoring the facade – in a typical for the Mediterranean coast aesthetics. But the strong connection between the house interior and its coastal surrounding is preserved – even enhanced through vast glass openings, skylights, and panoramic windows. The chill out terrace of the living room becomes an extension of the interior, securing boundless transition between in and out premises.
While rehabilitating the house, the designers entwined contemporary materials and schemes with traditional for its Mediterranean origin details. The original woodcocks, exposed beams and stone structures of the home interior are preserved and introduced in a dynamic dialog with contemporary materials and constructs from steel, concrete or trendy terrazzo and tile.
Each space and room features custom-made structures – shelving, kitchen islands, floor elevations, library divisions that give unique character and added value to the decor composition. This design approach includes entwinement of trendy furniture pieces, restored antiques or retro details and expressive color elements.
The beautiful mosaic floors vary their color, and graphic patterns form space to space giving in this way subtle and clever space division and functional distribution of premises. Like the cozy kitchen (with its summer inspired blue furniture) tile arrangement finishes and the polished terrazzo of the living room floor begins- distinctive division without an actual border. Richer tile patterns and colors adorn the corridor and bedroom – bathroom spaces. Very fresh, colorful and easy to maintain, in the Summer sand, interior décor solution. Photography by Marcela Grassi
