Magnificent rehabilitation of the House in Bellaterra

House in Bellaterra-01-1 Kindesign

This stunning project consists of a complete rehabilitation and interior design of a single family house and its outdoor spaces in the residential area of Bellaterra, on the outskirts of Barcelona. Designed by YLAB Architects, the proposal includes full internal redistribution of the interior spaces, the recomposition of the existing facades and exterior design of the terraces, pool and garden. The owners, a family passionate about light and spacious interiors, bought the property because of its fantastic views, but knew from the beginning, they needed a radical rehabilitation that would transform the house and its outdoors.

The goal was to convert this 5,382 square foot house of classical forms and narrow interior layout into a spacious modern house with continuity, allowing fantastic views from all levels. A new layout was made for this house, a facade matching its geometry, expanding the volume of the house was improved, and new walls and windows were created in solid wood carpentry, allowing abundant connections between the outdoors and the interior of the house. In the interior, the flooring is covered with natural Sahel polished limestone, which reflects the light increasing its intensity; the walls are painted in ivory white color; and the built-in furniture are finished in ivory white satin lacquer or natural tropical Etimoe wood, showing an elegant orange grain that bring a look of natural warmth in contrast with the white and glossy surfaces.

A staircase of access and planters recovered crosspieces-delimited was proposed in the front garden. In the rear, a large terrace in chipped stone, in prolongation of the interior space, descends towards the garden forming an infinity pool, an area of sunlight and a series of garden terraces.
