The Onside studio combines Nordic and Mediterranean decoration in this Valencia home

The architects Carlos Balada and Carlos Bonet select the PORCELANOSA Group Premium collections to combine the different rooms under a single structure.


Halfway between Nordic and Mediterranean interior design, this house in the centre of Valencia connects the different rooms by means of neutral tones and light textiles. That is the style that architects Carlos Balada and Carlos Bone from the Onside studio have applied with the most natural collections from PORCELANOSA Group.

An infinite and safe kitchen

Open to the living room and the rest of the property, this island-shaped kitchen has a diaphanous design in which borders disappear due to the absence of partitions and the sliding glass door through which the exterior light passes.

Its infinite countertop extends to the entrance of the dining room, reinforcing the "total white" aesthetic that prevails in the main rooms of the property. Built with the compact mineral Krion®, this surface transforms the room another living room and enhances its luminosity with white as the predominant tone.

Solid Surface Krion® contains a high mineral percentage and its installation enhances the safety and hygiene of this space due to its anti-bacterial properties, its zero porosity and its imperceptible joints. This, in turn, prevents dirt from accumulating and allows each piece to be moulded to form limitless and resistant surfaces.

To break with this white hegemony, Porcelanosa's ceramic wood Ascot Arce was chosen, which runs through each of the rooms. Inspired by oak, the pieces of this collection recreate the grains and knots of natural wood with the strength of ceramics.

A combination of harmony that follows the aesthetic principles of Scandinavian interior design with furniture lacquered in white, minimalist lamps or Nordic armchairs upholstered in grey.

A bathroom in glass and wood

The bathroom maintains the same interior design as the rest of the property. Linked to the main bedroom by a tempered glass door, the interior of this room has incorporated the Bottega Acero collection by Porcelanosa for the floors and walls. This greyish uniformity is reduced with the Krion suspended countertop and the Marmi China XL wall tile, as the white becomes sharper with Butech's Pro-Mate 3 Silver profile.

A bath designed for well-being and absolute tranquillity.
