The renovation is on the top floor of a building built in the town of Orihuela in the sixties. The apartment has stunning views over the treetops of the park below. In the distance are the Callosa and Orihuela mountain ranges.

The home has three bedrooms and a large living-dining area with an open kitchen. The bedrooms are located to the back, while the dwelling’s main reception area takes up the whole of the front façade overlooking the park. This latter space feels much extended, further accented by an impressive feature running along its length serving as a kitchen island and doubling up as a dining table.

The transformation of the home has been enabled by the two ingredients we believe to be essential to a good design: time and a great team. On the one hand, we have had time on our side. The time needed for solutions to be tailored and well-researched. The time to enjoy the process and bring the construction together perfectly.

On the other hand, we realize that architecture is a joint effort. A great number of people are involved along the way from the initial design stages to final delivery, from the clients who have the dream and need to conceive the project, to those who clean up the site at the end to leave it spotless. This has been one of those times when the talent and professionalism of everyone involved has made our work as architects simply the thread that strings the pearls together.
