Beach house on the Costa Brava, Spain
This house is located in Fontclara, a small town of about 40 houses in the “golden triangle” of Ampurdá, a tremendously natural and quiet landscape next to the Costa Brava, in the western Mediterranean. The triangle is formed by the medieval towns of Pals, Peratallada and Palau Sator. Fontclara is a peaceful oasis with its own character, located in close proximity to coastal towns full of shops and restaurants.
The restoration of a family house that integrates the garden and building.
This house is located in the Torrelaguna Urbanization, in the city of Medellin, at 1,500 meters above sea level in the tropics, with warm temperatures throughout the year and with alternate sunny and rainy hours daily.
Torrelaguna is in the neighborhood of El Poblado, which was formerly made up of houses with one to three floors with large green areas. Today, many of these properties have been replaced by buildings of 10 and 20 floors and the amount of greenery has decreased considerably. However, there are some areas in this neighborhood, such as this urbanization, with single-family houses, grouped around common green areas and each with its own patio or garden. In the case of Torrelaguna, it also has the advantage of being by the Campestre Golf Club, a central part of the city.
From an empty terrace to a social area with a green design.
This apartment is located in one of the first buildings of the mythical Via Laietana, a street which opened in the 1920s to connect the new part of the city with the sea, crossing the entire Gothic quarter. The high rise, classic buildings and relatively narrow streets have led it to be known for its “Chicago style”.
The building in which the apartment is located was built in 1918 and was completely renovated in 2015. The residence is located on the second floor and has exclusive access to a large three hundred square foot terrace, in which our furniture has helped to create an atmosphere that helps one leave the city while still being immersed in it.
