A brand new house

A brand new house

The usual thing when someone buys a flat house is to release it without making any modifications. However, the owners of this apartment were not convinced of some of the finishes that included - walls painted with gotelé, oak doors ... - which they considered too conventional, nor their distribution. His dream was to live in a house outside the traditional, original and different canons. The Global Start studio, with interior designer Luis Cuevas at the helm, was in charge of the project. His first step was to tear down doors and unnecessary walls to leave an empty space in which to start working freely.

The ceilings were raised to the maximum possible, an air conditioning system was installed by grilles - practically invisible - and the heating was renewed with design radiators. The I usually was replaced by oak wood Dutch with a treatment hardwax, a combination of wax and oil that keeps the pore open and enhances the natural beauty of the lama. On the walls the drop was removed and white satin enamel was applied, washable and with a silky texture. As for the distribution, we opted for sliding doors embedded in the wall, which allow compartmentalization of environments or create open spaces according to each moment. In those cases in which it was decided to install swing doors, of traditional opening, discrete models were commissioned, without frames, which extend to the ceiling to achieve a higher visual sensation. The cabinets also received special treatment. Custom designed by Luis Cuevas, they were completed with smooth fronts so that they merged visually with the wall and integrated to the maximum in the decoration.

Of the entire project, designed by Globlal Start and carried out by the Contratas y Servicios Car S.L. reform team, the master bedroom is probably the space preferred by its owners. They wanted a unique area in distribution and design. With the dressing room and bathroom integrated, highlights the glazed shower. his digital faucet, without visible controls, allows you to select on a touch screen the on and off, the temperature, the start-up of the sprayer or the desired effect on the water: rain, massage ...

The lighting deserved special attention: the lamps work with dimmers; each cabinet has interior light; The curtains include backlit galleries that achieve an attractive effect and in the corridor, LEDs of 1 cm in diameter were embedded in the wall to illuminate the floor at night.

King size radiators

Leaf embedded in the wall

The kitchen door was replaced by a recessed sheet in the wall, which allowed to install more furniture in the space that remained behind the original model, previously wasted. The high cabinets were limited to the number of essential modules, so that the environment was clearer.

Metal structure bar

In the wall with less background a small bar with metal structure and envelope matching the kitchen cabinets was created, which was completed with two stools. Perfect for breakfast or having a quick dinner, it has an added advantage: diverting the attention of the radiator that, half hidden, now almost goes unnoticed.

Slate effect paint

On the wall of the breakfast area, the Global Start studio team combined the white tiles that included the original house with slate-effect paint. In it you can remember an important appointment or write down the shopping list. The goal, says Luis Cuevas, was to create "a corner that is alive." The clothesline door, made of transparent glass, showed the washing machine, clothes hanging and other views without any interest. To avoid them, Global Start designed a translucent vinyl with the phrase "Bon appetit" in different languages ​​and with different orientations, which was attached to the door.

White shelves

In the children's bedroom a custom composition was made with shelves that frame the bed, located next to the window. The shelves, in white for the environment to be clear, have the perfect background to place dolls and, in the near future, reading books.
