Yoga house in Ruzafa. 1915 house Renovation.

Adrián Torres Astaburuaga as Architects

In the popular neighborhood of Ruzafa in the city of Valencia, Spain, the rehabilitation of this bourgeois house has aimed to maintain the heritage values of a house classified with heritage value, but adapting it to contemporary living conditions.

The work entails opening up the day part, maintaining the layout of the old partitions by inlaying wooden strips in the old hexagonal hydraulic tile floor, which has in turn been recovered. All the doors and woodwork are the original ones, although repositioned. A large yoga room opens at the rear of the house. The ceramics and wood introduce a warm calmness to the ambience of the habitat.


Material Used:
1. Facade cladding: Stucco façade with neoclassical or eclectic ornamentation
2. Flooring: Interior flooring in hexagonal hydraulic tile, original to the house (1915) recovered by chemical treatment and polishing. Oak inlays in the traces of the old partition walls, preserving the memory of the historical typology.
3. Doors: Original repositioned wooden doors
4. Interior lighting: Luminaires of various kinds. Schneider electrical mechanisms.
