Best Implemented Apartment / Private House Interior Design Project

About the project
The color blue is introduced as a chromatic memory element of the original state. All the interior carpentry was found painted in that color. According to several neighbors, it is something very particular about the finda, which unfortunately is being lost with the different transformations carried out in the houses. Following this criterion, the soil of burgundy hydraulic tile installed in the living room area, creating a carpet effect that reveals part of the house’s past and provides identity to the space. Glass is introduced in the interior partitions, made with blocks of different degrees of opacity depending on the face of the wall, playing with transparent and translucent effects, both gloss and matt, providing visual privacy to the bathroom and master bedroom spaces, but allowing in turn, the passage of light from the street to the interior of the house. In the bedroom, large blackout curtains are also added to provide the flexibility and darkness necessary for moments of sleep.
