INTEGRAL REFURBISHMENT IN JAVEA
Style: Mediterranean house
Type: Integral refurbishment and extention
Location: Jávea, Alicante
This Mediterranean house transformation in Javea has consisted of working with sensitivity of interpretation and structural modification, trying to make its intervention useful and attractive. The typology of modulated country house has been respected in spaces on an orthogonal grid. This condition has been refined and at the same time a contemporary programme has been introduced.
The exterior image has been given a larger scale, maintaining the original essence. The building is organised into two floors with a patio. This patio is now more present in the spaces of the house. On the ground floor there is the entrance and the day area, and also the guest area. The first floor accommodates the private area. The access is modernized and gives way to a pasarela and a double height staircase, redefining the relationship with the access and directly connecting the day area with the more private one. The circulations of the original building are redefined giving rise to a completely new distribution, where the spaces flow.
