APARTMENT IN EL CARMEN

Fran Silvestre Architects as Architects

The apartment is on the first floor of a mid-19th century three-storey building, located in the city centre of Valencia.


Considering the limited gross area and the scant natural light, this refurbishment project partitioned only the night-time areas and enhanced the verticality of the dwelling to the utmost, making the most of its high ceilings. The project also created a glass box with large windows in the former gallery which gives onto a terrace over the roof of the covered patio on the ground floor.


The interior is structured around a hall-cum-corridor completely covered from floor to ceiling with lacquered wooden board, comprising doors to other rooms, wardrobes and closets. The bedrooms face the street while the spacious kitchen-living room opens onto the terrace through the large window.
