Adding modernism to a heritage apartment in Spain

Posted on Tue, 20 Jun 2023 by KiM

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the ‘Joyous Home’ project is the choice of a colour palette. Because in this renovation project colour is the protagonist. Our interest has focused on breathing new life into this property included on the protected heritage building list of the town. The original house, designed very early in the 20th century, is the result of the introduction of Modernisme… Few alterations had been made to the original house. Perhaps the most significant is the loss of the original kitchen facilities. In response, we have designed the room with a simple but expressive approach, which dialogues naturally with the originality of the house and at the same time it is functional from current demands. The original cupboard has been rescued, lacquered in red, in front of the new pine structure that supports the minimal elements of the kitchen.
This home in Castro Urdiales, Spain is SOOOO much fun, and I adore the bold colour choices that come together in really unique ways that adds a ton of interest. By Cristina Acha & Miguel Zaballa of Acha Zabella Arquitectos; photos: Luis Díaz Díaz
