A family apartment has undergone an integral renovation to convert it into the ideal home for an empty nester couple. The design creates diagonal sight lines to maximise the spatial feeling and transform what was a relatively small and dark apartment into a generous home filled with light and colour.
The entrance, the kitchen and the living room are carefully combined in a single generous space. The removal of walls allows natural light to enter deep into the apartment. By working with distinctive pavements, each area holds its own character yet fits in perfectly with the rest.

An integral update to gain amplitude, light, and comfort.
A striking cupboard-wall organises the main space while adding hidden extra storage. This robust and efficient element encloses the two bathrooms in the centre of the plan.
Daylight enters the wet zone through the cupboard’s open niches, filtered by the textured glass and coloured by the intense blue tiles, providing an intense and unique bathing experience.
“I first fell in love with his legs,” she said. And their home became a tribute to them.
The meticulous choice of colour, materials and furniture adds to the feeling of amplitude and warmth throughout the apartment. Two types of wood – oiled oak and light birch -, combine with deep green cement tiles. These warm materials are reinforced by the calm beige kitchen and the lush green wall, while punctured by the bright primary colours of the cupboard-wall niches.
A balanced composition that plays with matching colours and strong contrasts.
