the architect Bianca Da Horain front of the desk Of the architecture of time (@nice architecture), was already known for a long time to a couple who wanted to move to a larger space. In their thirties, the couple was looking for a property that suited the family’s lifestyle.

The space has gained a new layout, responding to two main demands of the residents: the abundant entry of natural light, so that all environments are illuminated; and that the living room and kitchen were integrated.

To verify the wishes, the professional had to completely reformulate the initial plan. A laundry room has been incorporated in the kitchen and dining room, to ensure more space for the social environment.

The master suite was originally 29m², but it has also been reduced to make room for a playroom for the couple’s twin children to enjoy. The children’s room has also been refurbished and became Canadian suites, with a shared bathroom.

The social area houses the living room, dining room, balcony and kitchen, and has been given a contemporary decor, with a predominance of grey, white and wood tones, making the environments even brighter.

The couple wanted a cozy, practical and functional home that would meet all the family’s needs. After the renovation, the social surface was 60 m², guaranteeing space and ideal circulation for the inhabitants.

In the living room, an American oak panel extends from the entrance to the side of the living room, forming an L in the environment. In the dining room, a large mirror has been attached to the panel to give a feeling of space.

The TV corner, meanwhile, is bathed in natural light and has received a sofa with chaise longue to make the place even cosier. On the wall, a 3D coating associated with joinery hides the home cinema equipment.

In the kitchen, cabinets with gray doors match the palette of the rest of the social space, and have a gray veined countertop. The locksmith provided hanging shelves above the counter for easy storage.
