Bathing in the pleasant light of the Mediterranean, we find this modern attic with views of the City of Arts and Sciences of Valencia (Spain). The owners decided to remodel the home to achieve a brighter, more habitable space, which would allow them to use the maximum amount of space and take advantage of natural light.
To do this, the Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos studio, in charge of the project, chose to eliminate excessive compartmentalisation and give more importance to the fabulous views, giving continuity to the space through a brighter layout. Building company BFM Aedificatoria was charged with the execution of the refurbishment.
Laid out over two levels, on the lower floor the more social rooms have been installed, where mobile panels allow the kitchen and living room space to be reconfigured, according to the needs of the moment. The living room opens onto an outdoor terrace, with Ibiza Arenado marble flooring by L’Antic Colonial, the same as is used on the terrace of the upper floor, and on which we find flowerpot stands made from this natural stone. The upper floor has been laid out around the games room from which the different bedrooms are accessed.
The use of white, both on walls and the furniture of the house, as well as the use of the Modern Multiformato Siena natural wood parquet by L’Antic Colonial in all the interior rooms, has contributed to the achievement of a united aesthetic for the whole home.
The project leaders have also used materials from the firms of the PORCELANOSA Group in the bathrooms, maintaining the minimalist, modern aesthetic of the rest of the attic. Thus, for the coverings in wet areas, L’Antic Colonial’s Athenas marble has been used, perfectly combining with the countertops with integrated washbasin and hidden waste pipe, made from Krion®. Taps from the NK Logic collection and Arquitect toilets, both by Noken, complete the atmosphere of the bathroom in the home, where the colour white is also important.
