The property was a dated “cortijo-style” villa when we were commissioned to completely modernise it up to current standards. The client wanted to transform its original rustic features into a contemporary style, while still retaining a “homey” feel.
They wanted warm/happy colours. To that end, we used a light colour pallet with splashes of citrus tones combined with fresh aqua-coloured accents. All of the fixtures are in warm gold/bronzes, which is currently being favoured over stainless steel options.
We made the rooms appear a lot bigger than they were, by clever space planning. We changed the distribution of the rooms to make it more practical and feature a better use of space. We redesigned the ceilings, interior doors and dressing rooms, as well as the lighting design.
The project was basically a new build. The villa was taken back to a shell and totally redesigned including all new bathrooms, kitchen and major adjustments to the exterior. The finished result is hardly recognisable from the old villa that it once was.
