Brisa Home / Volka Interiors
Text description provided by architects. The integral refinement of this house is based on traditional materials such as handmade clay or noble materials like stone or wood. All this combined with the continuous flooring made with micro cement gives a clean touch to the space. In this way, the floor also gives the main character to the ceilings, which have been kept with their original moldings, except in the living-dining room, in which we chose wood-effect beams to bring more warmth to the space. All this is combined with the neutral tones and textures of the materials to create an atmosphere that creates a harmonious effect in each room.
For a distribution dominated by natural light and open spaces, we decided to invert the original distribution of the house, focusing it on the terrace, which is a very open and sunny terrace to give it character. Entering the house, we find more functional spaces, such as the living-dining room or the kitchen pantry. As we advance through the corridor, shielding these rooms from possible noise, we find bedrooms and toilets until we reach the studio. Through a recessed sliding door hidden between the walls, we divide these two areas into two environments, one more intimate and private and the other designed for traffic during the day.
Lighting is a crucial element in the design: we found a complete dominance of indirect and warm light, where the walls of lime paint and manual clay are washed with their irregularities, thus emphasizing the texture of the different rooms. It highlights fixed furniture such as shelves, headboards or furniture/stairs, reminiscent of the most traditional Mediterranean architecture. All of this combines these fixed elements with wooden details to create a warm and cozy atmosphere.
